In the Woolen Mills area of Charlottesville, the question isn't whether homes are for sale, it's are they historic?

Members of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources started touring the area on Monday.

They are conducting an architectural survey to possibly qualify the region as historic.

Residents are delighted their community may one day be on the national register of historic places.

“A bunch of interesting and wonderful things happened here. History is alive here, and what's in the history books isn't necessarily all that there is,” said Woolen Mills Resident Lyle Solla-Yates.

More than 200 years ago a grist mill and uniform factory stood on the land. Today, there are still many historic pieces of architecture left.
