L. Vincent Lowe, Jr., Business Award

Record #:
The L. Vincent Lowe, Jr. award is the highest preservation award given to a state business for promoting protection of architectural resources in the state. The Prince Charles Development Company in Fayetteville received the 1990 award for restoring the eight story Prince Charles Hotel in the downtown area. Built in 1925, the hotel was an elegant showplace, but by the 1980s it had fallen into ruin. Had not the Price Charles Company bought it for restoration, it would have been demolished.
