CCHA Preservation Projects
Most preservation projects are carried out by private individuals, and CCHA has assisted where possible over the years. One example is the three historic houses -- the Patrick St. Lawrence Yellow House, McClenahan House, and Taylor House -- now located on Small Street in Pittsboro. These houses were purchased by the county for the property where the new Justice Center is now located. CCHA spoke up for the preservation of these historic houses, and brought deterioration and vandalism to the attention of the county until the county agreed to work with Preservation North Carolina to put the houses in private hands. All have now been restored. Similarly, CCHA worked with the Chatham Park developers to save and find a private owner the Griffin House that stood on Highway 64 east of Pittsboro.
Three preservation projects have involved the CCHA more directly.
