PRESERVATION NORTH CAROLINA COVID-19 POLICY:
To ensure the health and safety of Preservation North Carolina staff, interested buyers, volunteers and the public, face coverings such as masks are required to be worn — and social distancing observed — during property showings and other interactions. The face covering should completely cover the nose and mouth. Onsite property showings will be to qualified buyers only. We appreciate your cooperation.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Eastern Regional Office has a new phone number – 252-563-5288 – due to our relocation from Greenville to Tarboro.
At Preservation North Carolina we rescue old houses.
And factory mills, schools, churches, general stores, and even the occasional big pink puppy.
We’re fondly referred to as “the animal shelter for old houses.” It’s a fun nickname, but a responsibility we take to heart. Through our nationally recognized and award-winning Endangered Properties Program we’ve rescued nearly 900 old, interesting, historic, sometimes abandoned, but always important properties. There’s a story behind each one and we are committed to telling it.
But we don’t do it alone.
We rely on the generous support of our members, so please look through our site to learn more about the groundbreaking work that we do, and consider joining the 4,500 members who support Preservation NC!Donate

Shelter Series: Preserving our Shrines of Liberty: Black Women and Historic Preservation 1896-2000
Join us for a presentation by UNC-W professor, Dr. Tara White. Many are familiar with the early preservation work of Susan Pringle Frost, the Mount Vernon Ladies Association, and other legacy organizations. Few are familiar with parallel efforts by African American Clubwomen during this same time. Dr. White’s presentation will explore the contributions and lasting impact Black women’s organizations had on pioneering historic preservation in the 20th century.
Trail of History: Preservation North Carolina
“Discover the work of Preservation North Carolina. This non-profit organization advocates for the preservation of historic properties across the state. In Gastonia, Preservation NC’s work at the Loray Mill served as an economic catalyst to spur reinvestment in the neighborhood. A local realtor in Charlotte purchased a mid-century modern home with the help of Preservation NC and made it his dream home. Plus, meet other individuals and groups who work with Preservation North Carolina to save the state’s historic homes and buildings.”
A big thank you to John Branscum for doing such a wonderful job with this show!
