Founded in 1939, Preservation North Carolina is our state’s only private statewide historic preservation organization. PNC acquires endangered historic properties and then finds purchasers willing and able to rehabilitate them. It has protected nearly 900 properties, generating an estimated $500+ million in private investment. Your support for this fundraising event will directly benefit PNC’s work to save endangered historic properties throughout North Carolina.
