        The 808-page book provides a fascinating record of how and why Winston-Salem grew. For historically significant structures it describes their architectural style, when they were built, who built them, and who occupied them. Additionally, the book documents how more than 110 neighborhoods came to be developed. The text is augmented with more than 900 documentary and current images of historically or architecturally significant buildings and neighborhoods.

        Fearnbach, a Winston-Salem native, has worked throughout North Carolina and in South Carolina and Tennessee, completing historic architectural surveys and reports for transportation projects, municipal and county architectural surveys and numerous nominations to the National Register of Historic Places, local historic designation reports, and rehabilitation tax credit applications.

        “Winston-Salem’s Architectural Heritage” is the culmination of an eight-year survey and research project financed by the state Historic Preservation Office and the city. The project expanded the scope of previous historic architectural resource analyses, including Forsyth County’s first comprehensive survey, completed by Gwynne Stephens Taylor in 1980. The results of that survey were published in 1981 as “From Frontier to Factory: An Architectural History of Forsyth County.” "
