Preserve Mecklenburg’s recent successes include saving from demolition large colonial homes in Plaza Midwood and Foxcroft and a small former grocery store in the historically Black Washington Heights neighborhood.  

Particularly innovative is an effort underway to preserve the Elizabeth Lawrence Garden near Winghaven.  An adjoining house will be purchased and sold with easements to control its height and limit its impact on sunlight reaching the garden.
