Legacy Architectural Salvage
LAS is a preservation program of the Historic Wilmington Foundation that has worked, for over 4 decades, to...
protect and preserve the irreplaceable architectural and historical resources of the Lower Cape Fear region. The Foundation was established in 1966 by a group of citizens concerned about the demolition of Wilmington’s historic buildings. A revolving fund (the first of its kind in NC) was set up to enable the HWF to save historic properties by buying them, placing protective easements on them to ensure their continued protection, and selling them for rehabilitation. The Foundation purchased and saved the Wright Murphy House in 1967 with the revolving fund. Since then the funds have also been creatively used to make loans and guarantee loans from banks. Nearly one hundred and fifty properties have been directly saved by HWF with its loans and easements. Hundreds more have been preserved because of the Foundation’s influence. We have also been successful in saving houses by having them moved and rehabilitated on a new lot.
