Welcome to Historic Flat Rock,Inc.

Historic Flat Rock, Inc. was founded in 1968. In 1973, as one of its first significant preservation actions, Historic Flat Rock, Inc. was instrumental in having 6.25 square miles of Flat Rock placed on the US Department of Interior, National Register of Historic Places. The ability to do this was created through the United States National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Since then Historic Flat Rock, Inc. has been instrumental in the preservation and restoration of properties of note. It has obtained numerous preservation easements on historic properties through the cooperation and generosity of the owners. In 2015 Historic Flat Rock, Inc. provided a further update to the Historic District as defined on the National Register of Historic Places. The Flat Rock Historic District is the largest historic district in the state of North Carolina. Many thanks to all those whose efforts will help preserve Flat Rock North Carolina now and for future generations.
