Historic architectural survey fieldwork underway

By Staff Report, posted 2 months ago

Surveyors in marked vehicles are leading an architectural survey of historic buildings and landscapes in Cumberland County beginning this week. The surveyors are predicted to be working toward project completion by August 2024.

The surveyors are with the cultural resources consulting firm JMT Inc., which is conducting the survey on behalf of Cumberland County to intensively document historic buildings and landscapes within the county from the early 19th century through the 1970s. Surveyors completed a survey of the Ramsey Street area and northeastern parts of Cumberland County last year.

The County received a $90,000 grant through the Emergency Supplemental Historic Preservation Fund, administered by the National Park Service, for Hurricanes Florence and Michael. The survey included the unincorporated jurisdiction of Cumberland County and the towns of Godwin, Falcon, Wade, Linden, Stedman, Spring Lake and Eastover. The City of Fayetteville, Fort Liberty and Hope Mills are not included in the survey because they have their own independent studies.

Data gathered from the survey will help the County plan for the preservation of its historic resources in the future.
