The Main Street® philosophy is “economic development through historic preservation.” As an accredited NC Main Street community, Clayton follows that philosophy as a core value in the revitalization and future development of downtown Clayton.
One of the tangible benefits of having a Contributing structure listed in the Historic District are the federal and state Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits.
The Clayton Historic Association (CHA) has a historic building Plaque Program which residential and commercial buildings may receive a historic plaque to commemorate its historical significance in Clayton.
