Abstract:
Gaston County is one of North Carolina's most historic counties, and preserving its history is important to the community. For example, four buildings that were thought to be ready for demolition in 1996, including the 600,000-square-foot Loray Mill, were saved and rehabilitated. Smaller Gaston County towns, including Dallas, Belmont, and Cherryville, also have preservation stories to tell.
