The Shelter Series is Preservation NC's Virtual Programming Series about Places That Matter.
We fondly refer to PNC as “the animal shelter for old houses.” It’s a fun nickname, but a responsibility we take to heart. Right now, “shelter” has taken on so many important meanings. At its core, we believe “shelter” remains what it’s always been – a place that provides cover and protection.
Our work is focused on the houses, buildings, churches, schools, and mills that have provided cover and protection for generations of North Carolinians. During this time when “sheltering” has become central to our lives, we want to explore with you the culture, architecture, diversity and stories of the many shelters across our state.
We hope you’ll join us as we provide some fun, distraction, cover and comfort. Come virtually “Shelter” with us! Visit PreservationNC.org for upcoming “Shelter Series” events!
Through Preservation NC's nationally recognized and award-winning Endangered Properties Program we’ve rescued nearly 900 old, interesting, historic, sometimes abandoned, but always important properties. And there’s a story behind each one.
Join us as we talk with Dr. Mark Wilde-Ramsing about Blackbeard's Queen Anne's Revenge and Wilmington's Other Battleship.
