The historic home of Colonel Silas Alexander Sharpe has stood as a silent witness to the changing fortunes of Statesville, North Carolina since 1866. Originally the home of the City's first mayor, it reflects the hopes and hard work of a post-Civil war generation committed to rebuilding their community as a thriving center for trade while never losing touch with a tradition of gracious Southern hospitality.

Today, thanks to the forethought and generosity of his descendants, this grand reminder of a genteel past is open again. The Silas Alexander Sharpe Foundation is proud to welcome you to a place where the future meets the past.
