Flat Top Estate, the western mountain home of Greensboro textile magnate Moses Cone, reflects the wealth and social status Cone gained from his extensive textile enterprises.

Ten properties and districts statewide have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

"The National Register is a vital tool in the preservation of our state's historic resources. I am proud that North Carolina is a leader in the nation's historic preservation movement," said Susan Kluttz, secretary of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.

The latest additions to the National Register are as follows:

  • Old South Mebane Historic District Boundary Increase, Mebane, Alamance County
  • Fort Caswell Historic District, Oak Island, Brunswick County
  • Durham Hosiery Mills Dye House, Durham, Durham County
  • Hillside Park High School, Durham, Durham County
  • Louise Cotton Mill, Charlotte, Mecklenburg County
  • James D. and Frances Sprunt Cottage, Wrightsville Beach, New Hanover County
  • Valentine-Wilder House, Spring Hope vicinity, Nash County
  • Oakdale Cemetery, Hendersonville, Henderson County
  • Eureka Manufacturing Company Cotton Mill, Lincolnton, Lincoln County
  • Flat Top Estate, Blowing Rock vicinity, Watauga County

The National Register was established by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 to ensure that as a matter of public policy, properties significant in national, state, and local history are considered in the planning of federal undertakings, and to encourage historic preservation initiatives by state and local governments and the private sector.
