Like most areas of the country, Burke County has experienced many changes over the past 50 years. Large furniture plants and textile mills that dotted the landscape have closed down. Through the hard work and commitment of Burke County citizens many of these buildings, and numerous others, have been turned into redevelopment projects.

Learn about some of these projects and contact BDI if you need assistance with repurposing a building or site.
