“Winston-Salem’s Architectural Heritage,” commissioned by the Historic Resources Commission, records how and why Winston-Salem grew.

For historically significant structures it describes their architectural style, when they were built, who built them, and who occupied them.

The book also documents how more than 110 neighborhoods came to be developed.

The text is augmented with more than 900 documentary and current images of historically or architecturally significant buildings and neighborhoods.

Copies of the book will be available for $60 each, by check or cash only, at all events.

The book is also available for purchase at the Stuart Municipal Building, 100 E. First St., or can be ordered online at
