Jen,
The "Bread Basket of the Colonies" was the Mohawk Valley region of New York State. There are still many homes built in the 1700's available and prices quite reasonably in this location. The entire area teems with historical sites and oppotunities for people to get involved with saving a page in our country's history.

In my opinion the general area has the potential to be another Williamsburg.
Good luck,

Jen,
I would suggest you visit my favorite website: http://www.preservationdirectory.com There is a section of homes for sale all over the country that you can browse. There is also a section of real estate agents who specialize in selling historic homes, who may be able to assist you in finding homes that aren't on the website. Happy Hunting!

Hi Jen,
You can certainly check the local Historic Homes registry for homes that have been designated as "Historic". I know the Indian Trail Library will be able to help you with that as well. They have a great room off to the side with lots of local historical history, etc. But, many homes that are old and could be historical have never been named as such for many reasons. For example, I grew up in a home here in Charlotte that is well over 100 years old, but my family has never had it named as such because at that point a home can become less marketable in the sense that there are more stipulations and criteria that then have to be met and followed when renovating it. So, if it's an older home that you want, we can search by age and other criteria that will help us find you the home you want. Because of how I grew up, I love older homes and would love to help you - please feel free to call me and we can discuss your needs. I'll look forward to hearing from you!

Jen,

The City of Mebane has not yet designated a "historic district" but does have some historic homes in the area. Occasionally, these historic homes do come up for sale. If a homeowner would like to buy a home and have it designated as a historic property, there is a process to follow. I think there are several properties in Mebane that would qualify. The State of North Carolina Historic Preservation office has great information o their website and a wonderful staff to help with the historic designation process. They also have a link to the National Register on historic properties but they are not a "for sale" site. You can visit the state website at the link below. I have a great love of old homes and have helped with the sale and purchase of many old homes in Mebane. Do let me know if you want me to do some searching for you or put you on an automatic email program so you will be notified if an older home or historic property comes available. Hope that helps!

Jen,

I would check with the county or the city/town of where you are wanting to buy a historic home and see if they have a historic home registry. Then find an agent that will pull homes for that area for you. If you like I know a few agents down that way and could give you some names if you like. I do commend you though. So many people want new and shiny now days that they miss those old gems that can have so much character to them. Hope this helps some.

Jen,
Most areas will have certain agents that do older historic homes. I do them here in Greensboro but, I do not go as far as Mebane. I have always bought personally older homes and my last was a 160 year old Carpenter Gothic farm house in Conover, NC. Of course as you know it takes a special person to want homes with character. There are quite a few around the triad for sale that I have shown and I am sure some in your area. So if you pick an area you want to buy in let me know and we can find you an agent with that background.

Hope this helps and good luck,
