Description 

While this is technically an individual Historic District, it is a de facto expansion of the Queen-Gordon Streets Historic District and that fact is mentioned in the Kinston Commercial Historic District NRHP Nomination. Both districts are now collectively referred to as the Kinston Commercial Historic District, despite the separate listings.
