When was the Historic Resources Commission created?

The Historic Resources Commission was created in 2001, and was a result of the merger of the Forsyth County Joint Historic Properties Commission and the Winston-Salem Historic District Commission.

The Forsyth County Joint Historic Properties Commission was originally formed in 1976 as the community’s first County-wide preservation commission.

The Winston-Salem Historic District Commission was the first historic preservation commission established in North Carolina in 1948. It was responsible for the oversight of the Old Salem Historic District, North Carolina’s first local historic district and the forerunner of today’s State enabling legislation for historic districts and landmarks.
