Pic of the Week
The Rogers House has landed at its new home at the corner of Bloodworth and Cabarrus. It’s one of the two homes that were saved from West Street where The Fairweather, a 45-unit condo building, is planned to go.

That could be the case as there will only be 37 parking spaces, according to the site plan, which is […]
