The Downtown North Historic District is an area of commercial buildings that developed during the early part of the 20th century. Located north of Winston-Salem's central business district, the district served as the working person's downtown, where farmers came to sell their tobacco and other products. The area tells the story of commercial enterprises that supported the everyday lives of tobacco farmers and workers. Downtown North provided goods needed by the working-class tobacco populace, such as feed and seed stores, hardware stores, groceries, small clothing shops, welding and machinery shops, and automobile service garages. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
