Ten New NRHP Sites in North Carolina

From the March 21, 2014, WECT News, Wilmington, NC.  Two of the new National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) were near Wilmington.

One was Fort Caswell by the mouth of the Cape Fear River and the other the beach cottage of James D. and Frances Sprunt at Wrightsville Beach, built in 1937 and considered an example of beach homes built by wealthy persons during the time.

Fort Caswell, built in the early 1800s, saw considerable action during the Civil War and a lot of it was destroyed after the capture of Fort Fisher.

Other new  NRHP sites:  Old South Mebane Historic District, Mebane;  Durham Hosiery Mills Dye House, Durham; Hillside Park High School, Durham; Louise Cotton Mill, Charlotte;  Valentine-Wilder House, Spring Hope, Nash County;  Oakdale Cemetery, Hendersonville;  Eureka Manufacturing Company Cotton Mill, Lincolnton and Flat Top Estate, Blowing Rock.
