Historic Preservation Advisory Board

The City of Belmont has a distinctive and important history as a thriving town and textile manufacturing center, and has been a city of sundry cultural origins and ancestral traditions.  As a consequence of the city's historic background its architectural character grew from the vision of its landowners and citizens who saw the area evolve through four centuries of progress and expansion. The city wishes to protect its architectural past by enlisting the help of interested citizens who are dedicated to the cause of preserving our history through observation, research and education.

On April 1, 2019, the city council established a historic preservation advisory board to further these goals by assisting the property owners of residential and commercial building in the voluntary designation of local landmarks, to promote historic preservation efforts, and to coordinate with the Gaston County Historic Preservation and our local historic organizations in this pursuit.
