Historic Weldon, was founded on a rich history centered around the rapid currents of the Roanoke River, the safety of the Roanoke Canal, the beginnings of several early railroad systems and Rockfishing. Our National Registered Historic District contains a variety of southern architectural styles and a handsome commercial district. These facets of our community are being developed as a treasure of the past as we plan for the future. Enjoy this virtual journey around Weldon, but be sure to pay us a visit to enjoy the thrill of what we have to offer.

I've make a lot of progress on the big building project. Several major projects have been completed.
Converting the existing restroom to meet Handicap requirements consisted of widening the door, replacing the toilet and sink and installing hand rails.
To meet building codes, I had to install another exit door in the back of the main show room. This required cutting a hole through a 12 inch block wall and installing the door. Due to the elevation difference from the inside to the outside, I had to build a 16 foot long handicap ramp on the inside and a 5 foot deck on the outside.
The interior of the building is coming along nicely. I’ve been hanging sheetrock and will soon start mudding and sanding. When the first phase is completed the building will have 4 large shops and 10 Flea Market stalls. There will be an area unfinished and I will decide later whether the demand is for additional shops or more flea market stalls. I have been working really hard to have this building ready for showing and to begin accepting vendors in early October.
And I’ve chosen a name. Weldon Town Center. The logo will feature the name and a depiction of the skyline of buildings on the East side of Washington Avenue where this building is in the center of the Downtown Business District. It is my hope that this building will become a center of activity for Downtown Weldon and a generator of revitalization efforts.

1.1.16 Happy New Year. No resolutions. Just GOALS. To have both of these buildings fully occupied with 8 tenants by mid year. Been working towards that goal today. Got two tenants already and waiting on me to get it ready.
