Documentation of why and in what ways the Blandville House meets the criteria for designation set forth in N.C.G.S. 160A-400.5.

                        a.  Special significance in terms of its history, architecture, and/or cultural importance.  The Commission believes that the Blandville House does possess special historical significance for Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.  It bases its judgment on the following considerations.                          

1)      The Blandville House is a rare example of a African American working class abode surviving in Center City Charlotte.

2)      The Blandville House is a rare survivor of the built environment of Blandville, one of a series of African American neighborhoods that arose on the edges of Charlotte in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.                     

 

 b.  Integrity of design, setting, workmanship, materials, feeling and/or association.  The Commission judges that the description presented in the Center City Survey demonstrates that the Blandville House meets this criterion.
