Why is it important to save our historic buildings?

The Charlotte Museum of History presents the Mad About Modern Home Tour to celebrate and foster appreciation of midcentury + modern architecture and design, as well as contemporary thinking in these fields, by encouraging education, preservation and sustainable modern living in the greater Charlotte area. Our historic built environment adds value to the Charlotte region in the following ways:

  • Historic buildings provide a tangible connection to our history.
  • Historic buildings add personality and character to our streetscapes and keep them from appearing bland and boring.
  • Historic buildings provide incubator space for entrepreneurs and artists who need lower cost rents while establishing their businesses.
