The Statesville Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) was established by the City Council in 1982. Its mission is to identify, preserve, and protect Statesville's historic resources and to educate the public about those resources and historic preservation in general.

The Historic Preservation Commission consists of nine members, assisted by City staff, who bring with them extensive experience in maintaining the integrity and appearance of historic buildings. Appointed by City Council the HPC membership includes Statesville residents who have demonstrated special interest, experience, or education in history, architecture, archaeology, or other preservation-related fields.

Based upon its established Commission and City staff support, Statesville qualifies for the Certified Local Government (CLG) Program, a federal program administered by the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office. CLG status benefits the community in a number of ways including eligibility for preservation-related grant opportunities.
