Preservation North Carolina has moved its Eastern Regional Office to Uptown Greenville. The office, previously located in Edenton, will be run by new Regional Director, Maggie Gregg, and is located at 315 Evans Street.

From her office in Greenville, Gregg will work to protect and promote the preservation of historic properties for 31 counties in eastern NC. She will help find buyers willing and able to rehab historic properties throughout the region, as well as monitor properties and landscapes that are already protected through covenants or easements held by Preservation NC. While Gregg will spend a lot of time in the new office, she’ll also spend quite a bit of time traversing the roads of eastern NC.

When asked about the office move, Gregg said with a grin, “I’m really happy to be working back in my hometown! I can’t wait to take advantage of the umbrella market, freeboot Fridays, and all the other great activities that Uptown has to offer.”

Gregg comes to Preservation NC after the previous Regional Director, Claudia Deviney, retired after 18 years of service. Gregg has years of experience as a realtor in eastern NC and a passion for historic preservation. You can reach her at: 252-689-6678 or
