Chancellor’s House drive

By Todd Cohen

GREENSBORO, N.C. — With a challenge grant from an anonymous donor that will match donations dollar for dollar up to $100,000, Preservation North Carolina is looking for donors to help complete its drive to raise $2 million to renovate the Chancellor’s House at UNC-Greensboro.

Built in 1922, and moved in June 2003 to Spring Garden Street near Aycock Street, the Chancellor’s House will house the university’s admissions office and visitors center starting in January, and will be named for Jane Harris Armfield and Emily Harris Preyer, sisters and UNCG alumnae who died in 2000 and 1999, respectively.

Private fundraising for the project by Preservation North Carolina, which is leasing the property and expects to complete the renovations this fall and return the property to UNCG, now is just $286,350 short of its goal.
