A fine example of preservation at work, the collaborative efforts of Historic Salisbury Foundation, the History Channel, and Lowes Home Improvements saved one of the most significant Queen Anne Victorian properties in the Piedmont of North Carolina.  This effort was national televised in September of 2006 on the History Channel on a program entitled "Save Our History: A Victorian Reborn".  Within three months the home was sold to a couple who have become wonderful stewards of this significant home.  
Saturday October 8th's Historic Open House will run from 1PM ~ 4PM.  It will be a beautiful, sunny, 75-degree day ~ perfect for touring historic homes, both in the Park Avenue Historic District, and Historic Salisbury Foundation's October Tour of Historic Homes.  Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to view a part of history in Salisbury North Carolina, and perhaps own a piece of it for yourself!
