The neighborhood is laid out in grid patterned streets along which houses rendered in nationally-popular styles were regularly spaced within well-landscaped yards. Fulton Heights is among several neighborhoods of the period in North Carolina that boasted amenities such as a streetcar system and large park area within its boundaries. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

The old trolley lines are now covered with landscaped green-space mediums that the neighborhood maintains.  The neighborhood additionally raised enough funding and worked with the City of Salisbury to create Centennial Park, where Easter Egg hunts are conducted annually and other neighborhood events are held.  This one acre park located in the Fulton Heights neighborhood features a walking trail, a footbridge, a picnic table with benches, and a play structure. Tree-lined streets give this neighborhood a special feel where families walk, children bicycle, and where the neighborhood even provides a weekly dog-walk.  The area is supported by the strong Fulton Heights Neighborhood Association, that ensures local codes are enforced, exercises a crime-watch program, and keeps the lines of communication open in the neighborhood.  The neighborhood association sponsors a Halloween Parade, Easter Egg Hunt, and Holiday Home Tour. 

The opportunity to own an Arts & Crafts bungalow in Fulton Heights at this price does not come along every day!  This 1243 sq ft, 2-bedroom home is the perfect starter or retirement cottage!  And the neighborhood's proximity to Downtown Salisbury keeps you within reach of the cultural happenings, dining, and shopping opportunities that comprise historic Salisbury North Carolina.
