10 NC Historic Spots Added To National Register

Ten North Carolina properties and districts ranging from a cotton mill to an estate are now part of the National Register of Historic Places.

The National Register of Historic Places is the nation's official list of buildings, structures, objects, sites and districts worthy of preservation for their significance in American history, architecture, archaeology and culture.

The newly named properties include the Eureka Manufacturing Co. Cotton Mill in Lincolnton and the Flat Top Estate near Blowing Rock. Other properties are in Alamance, Brunswick, Durham, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, Nash and Henderson counties. It's estimated that North Carolina has about 73,300 National Register properties.

The listing of a property in the National Register doesn't oblige or restrict a private owner using private resources to maintain or alter the property.
