National Register Historic Districts

 
The National Register of Historic Places is a federal program administered by the National Park Service in partnership with state governments to recognize and protect properties of historic and cultural significance that warrant consideration in federal undertakings, such as highway construction and urban renewal projects, and to provide incentives for local and private preservation initiatives. National Register listing is primarily an honor, meaning that a property has been researched and evaluated according to established procedures and determined to be worthy of preservation for its historical value.
 
Listing in the National Register does not obligate or restrict a private owner in any way unless the owner seeks a federal benefit such as a grant or tax credit. For a private owner, the chief practical benefit of National Register listing is eligibility for a 20% federal investment tax credit that can be claimed against the cost of a certified rehabilitation of an income-producing historic building. There is also a 20% "piggyback" North Carolina investment tax credit for income-producing historic properties, and a 30% state credit for non-income-producing historic properties.
 
National Register Historic Districts within the City of Gastonia include:
 
Loray Mill Downtown York Chester

For more information, see the Quick Links section to the right.
 
The Planning Department is located at Garland Municipal Business Center at 150 S. York Street on the second floor.
