Congratulations Greg Rapp ~ Preservation Craftsman & Professional of the Year!

Congratulations to REALTOR® Greg Rapp ~ Historic Salisbury Foundation 'Preservation Craftsman and Professional' Awardee 2014!

Greg Rapp with Wallace Realty is the market leader in Salisbury-Rowan County selling historic properties. In their announcement letter to Greg, Historic Salisbury Foundation states, "Your work to promote the sale of historic properties has been deemed exemplary by our committee, making you a preservation leader by example."

The HSF initiated the awards program a number of years ago to recognize members of the Salisbury-Rowan community who have made a significant contribution to the effort of Historic Preservation.

In the past year alone, Greg worked to sell:
  • The c. 1919 Stokes-Snider House, which has now been preserved and renovated into the wonderful Across The Pond bed & breakfast
  • The c. 1897 Old Salisbury Firehouse, one of Salisbury's most unique buildings that was once City Hall, the Firehouse, and the local jail!
  • The c. 1930's historic Flowers Bakery Building, most recently the home of East Square Artworks.
  • The c. 1882 Bernhardt Hardware Building ~ which is looking forward to its reincarnation with retail spaces on the main level and residential spaces above.
  • Not one, but TWO, circa 1900 homes in the Chestnut Hill Neighborhood, that were originally targeted for demolition but have now been the catalyst for a neighborhood revitalization project!
  • The c. 1906 home at 200 Mitchell Avenue, which will feature the "History Porch" during the Historic Salisbury Foundation's annual October Tour of Historic Homes.
  • The c. 1893 J. R. Silliman House, a fabulous Victorian in the Brooklyn South Square Historic Neighborhood.
  • The c. 1930 Arts & Crafts Bungalow at 1403 S. Fulton Street in the Fulton Heights Historic Neighborhood.
  • The c. 1924 Arts & Crafts Bungalow on Circle Drive, Salisbury NC.
  • The pre-WWII home, circa 1941, on Dukeville Road, on the property that was all part of Dukeville Village. Duke Energy established and maintained Dukeville Village as housing for employees and their families well into the 1950s. Employees paid rent, and their children attended a school located on Dukeville Road.
