Historic Districts

South Aspen Street National Register Historic District

The South Aspen Street Historic District is a cohesive and distinctive area where over 70 historic resources form a microcosm of Lincolnton’s residential and institutional development from the mid 19th century to the mid-twentieth century.

The West Main Street National Register Historic District

The West Main Street Historic District possesses among its one primary and eight secondary resources the largest surviving collection of buildings erected in Lincolnton during the 19th century prior to the Civil War—the period when the county seat experienced its greatest period of prosperity and influence.

The buildings reflect the Federal and Greek revival styles of architecture. Complementing the buildings from the first half of the nineteenth century up to the civil war, the district also contains houses from the first three decades of the 20th century that are good representatives of the transitional late Victorian/Colonial Revival, Colonial Revival, bungalow/Craftsman and period cottage styles popular during those years.
