Driving along Green Level Church Road from Cary Park towards Apex I saw a newly installed brown information sign saying "Green Level Historic District". I know its April Fools day but the only thing historic along that part of Green Level Road is the holes in the road

Maybe I need to search out all the historic points of interest that I have been driving past so many times without realising - anyone got any ideas as to why this sign has apeared?

Well the sign has gone -maybe it was an April Fool after all
when I drove past an hour ago there was a 45 speed limit sign where the Hstoric Green Level sign was positioned. I am intrigued why it was put there and then removed a few days later - anyone else see it?

From my experience, almost every time a sign says "historic district", it means old and rundown. See Apex downtown as an example. It is awful. Buildings with paint peeling off and falling on the sidewalk. Wood rotting everywhere. It is a real shame that these "historic" districts are not either renovated to bring them up to snuff or bulldozed.

Are you kidding about Apex? They are definitely in the mist of a revitalization and a very successful one! & the Green Level historic district is anything but run down just ask all the builders that are lined up to build their high end homes directly adjacent to it. I guess historic preservation is not your forte. New doesn't mean better, especially when the new doesn't fit into the vernacular of the area.
