75th Anniversary

Preservation North Carolina celebrated our 75th anniversary in 2014.  Over that time, the organization has saved over 700 historic properties. We held a year-long series of tours showcasing important historic properties we have protected from the mountains to the coast (and a few that are not “ours” but are so spectacular we had to include them!). We hope you will consider supporting us beyond our 75th year so that we can continue this important work. Click here for information on how to support Preservation NC.
