Department of Cultural Resources Secretary Susan Kluttz, Mayor Dana Outlaw, the Board of Aldermen, city staff and other local leaders Wednesday, April 8 at 2 p.m., as part of the state historic tax credit tour of historic buildings that have utilized the recently expired historic tax credits. Various stops throughout New Bern will be included and Governor McCrory, Secretary Kluttz and city officials will kick off the visit at the Isaac Taylor House located at 228 Craven Street.

“The Historic Tax Credits brought jobs and economic development to rural towns and big cities across North Carolina,” said Secretary Kluttz. “The rebirth of one abandoned downtown building has a ripple effect throughout a community and often sparks a renaissance of development in nearby structures. In addition, these historic buildings and mills are an emotional tie to our heritage and exemplify what makes North Carolina unique. These credits are critical for North Carolina’s economic recovery. “

Historic tax credits were used by business and homeowners who owned historic properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places to preserve their buildings within defined guidelines. Used in 90 of North Carolina’s 100 counties, in both rural and urban areas, these historic tax credits boosted local economies and created jobs, while preserving communities’ historic cores and our state’s priceless historic character.
