Documentation of why and in what ways the Hovis Funeral Home Building 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 Hovis Funeral Home Building does possess special historical significance for Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.  It bases its judgment on the following considerations.                          

1)      The Hovis Funeral Home Building was designed by regionally important architect William H. Peeps.

2)  The Hovis Funeral Home relects the importance of Tryon Street and the principal upscale commercial street in early twentieth century Charlotte.


 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 Hovis Funeral Home Building meets this criterion.
