A Historic Place
Being on the National Register of Historic Places has its perks.
Residents in Belhaven have been taking advantage of at least one of those perks since the neighborhood was added to the register last December.
On December 18, 2012, the National Park Service added the area located north of Fortification Street and south of Woodrow Wilson to the registry.
Its addition opened up the neighborhood to many benefits, including making residents and business owners with properties in the area eligible for state and federal historic tax credits.
