A Tour of Two Inglesides & Booksigning

Sunday December 2
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Two Inglesides.  Ten miles apart.  Two architectural styles.  Both highly significant.  Join Preservation North Carolina and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission to celebrate their preservation!

Earlier this year, Ingleside in Lincoln County (1817) was donated to PNC to ensure its permanent protection from new development.  This generous donation is the largest gift of property PNC has ever received, and we are thrilled to celebrate!  Featured in Catherine Bishir’s North Carolina Architecture, it is one of the state’s most significant Federal-style houses.

Just a short drive away, Ingleside in Mecklenburg County (late 1850s) has been purchased by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg HLC to ensure its protection in the rapidly growing area of Huntersville.  The fine Italianate country house is likely the only remaining example of its kind in Mecklenburg County.

$10/person at the door.
Purchase tickets at either location.

Ingleside I (Lincoln County):  214 S. Ingleside Farm Rd, Iron Station, NC 28080

Ingleside II (Mecklenburg County):  7225 Bud Henderson Rd, Huntersville, NC 28078
