The Sharon Downtown Historic District is a significant collection of commercial and industrial buildings which illustrate the development of the commercial core of the small community of Sharon since its beginnings in the late 1880s. The nine buildings contributing to the character of this historic district provide evidence of the establishment and growth of a small downtown through the various periods of the town’s development from 1888 through 1945. The district consists primarily of masonry commercial buildings built between 1908 and 1944 which historically housed a variety of businesses serving the developing town of Sharon in the first half of the twentieth century. The properties in the district, taken as a whole, possess architectural integrity and provide an important record of the development of commerce and industry in the community. Many of the district’s buildings are excellent examples of commercial buildings typical of small towns in the Piedmont of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Listed in the National Register November 2, 2001.
