MISSION STATEMENT

Nearly every town in North Carolina has several “ghost signs” wearing away from their historic buildings.  These signs tell an important story of the communities’ commercial, societal and cultural histories. Only in the last few years have community leaders joined forces with building owners to accurately restore these historical markers. Revitalizing these early Twentieth Century signs preserves not only the history of the building, but of the community. It is our intention to thoroughly research and carefully restore these keys to our past.   

We were recognized by the Historic Salisbury Foundation in March, 2005 for our efforts to restore historic ghost signs. The foundation presented us with a Commercial Revitalization through Historic Preservation award for our work on the restoration of the exterior "Frick" era signs on the Salisbury Emporium building. Pictures of this project are included below.
