Chatham's Architectural Heritage

Architecture sets the stage on which lives and history are acted out. The built environment, which consists of semi-permanent things such as landscape and buildings, helps tie us to our past. This architectural heritage is one of the most tangible pieces of evidence that indicates that others have gone before us and that we have a very real connection to our past and our future. The banister rail that Senator London must have held each evening on the way to chambers, the kitchen window view that grandmother must have gazed at during long war years, the schools and the churches we build for generations to come—all connect us with other lifetimes.  ~ Kurt Lent, quoted in The Architectural Heritage of Chatham County, North Carolina, p. viii.
