Greensboro City Council approved the designation of a house on North Church Street as a Guilford County historic landmark at its meeting on Tuesday.

Greensboro Senior Planner Mike Cowhig says around 60 properties in the city are designated as county landmarks. He says the Bradshaw-Freemon House is a prairie-style property, which is rare in the area.

Cowhig says after visiting the home he advised the owners to pursue a historic landmark status.

"I saw that it had probably the most impressive interior arts and crafts features that I have ever seen," Cowhig says.

According to the city, owners of landmark properties are eligible for an up to 50% property tax deferral.

In other business, the city council approved around $2.5 million for the A&Y Greenway Bridge Replacement Project. The funds are intended to expedite the design and construction process.

The bridge has been closed due to structural deficiencies.
