"A" Street Historic District

The “A” Street Historic District is located south and east of downtown and is comprised of residential and other properties. The district contains an eclectic mix of residences, offices, churches, and apartments nearly all built before 1925, illustrating a cross-section of architectural history over the 65-year period of the neighborhood’s development from 1860 to 1925. Nearly all buildings are intact examples of their various architectural styles from that time period, including several transitional combinations. The district and its guidelines were adopted by City Council in 1986 through Ordinance 1666 N.C.S.
