Abstract:
Branch Grove, the birthplace of Alpheus Branch, founder of BB&T, is an extremely fine 1820's Federal tripartite house (with an earlier 1790s Georgian wing). Placed on the National Register in 1982, the highly significant house was rented to tenants from the 1880s to the early 1980s and sat vacant for decades. Preservation NC marketed the house for eleven years with lots of interest, but the challenge was always finding a suitable new site. In 2016, we faced a final ultimatum: move it or it will be burned down. The stars finally aligned with available land, and at the final hour, PNC received an extremely generous anonymous donation to relocate the house and stabilize its exterior. PNC was fortunate to partner with local contractor Andrus & Company on the renovation. The house was moved to a nearby site of over 38 acres and Preservation NC is looking for a buyer.

Abstract:
Blounts Creek is a 14 mile long blackwater coastal waterway, located in Beaufort County on the south side of the Pamlico River east of Chocowinity and west of Aurora.

The local 'Save our Blounts Creek Committee' and the Pamlico-Tar River Foundation are fighting the good fight to attempt to curtail this environmental travesty.
