The National Register of Historic Places has added 11 sites in North Carolina. Several locations in the Piedmont Triad have made the list.

The sites were announced by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

Among the new additions is the Elizabeth and Bowman Gray Jr. House near Lewisville. The Georgian-style home located at Brookberry Farm was built in 1950 by the Winston-Salem-based architect William Roy Wallace.

Also new to the registry is the Pilot Hosiery Mill in Pilot Mountain, established in the mid-1940s and twice expanded until it closed in 2011. According to a DNCR news release, the mill was added due to its role as one of three primary textile manufacturers that drove the region's economy.

The register now also includes St. Stephen United Methodist Church in Lexington, a historically African American church established in 1868.

And the Mount Airy Historic District added updated documentation which provides additional context to its existing inclusion on the list.
