The Old South Mebane Historic District Boundary Increase in the town of Mebane in Alamance County, North Carolina, containing 108 buildings and 9 structures, meets National Register Criterion C in the area of architecture. Comprised of residential properties in four areas adjacent to the Old South Mebane Historic District (NR 2011 ), the boundary increase is similar to the original historic district in boasting a wide array of domestic architectural styles from the early twentieth century up through the early 1960s. Buildings in the boundary increase areas are built in the predominant architectural styles, including the Colonial Revival, Craftsman, Period Cottage, Minimal Traditional, Ranch, and Modernist styles, executed in small railroad towns in North Carolina's Piedmont from the turn of the twentieth century through 1962. The period of significance for the Old South Mebane Historic District Boundary Increase begins ca . 1900, the date of construction of the earliest houses in the original historic district and runs through 1962, the construction date for the youngest house in the boundary increase, after which there is a nearly decade-long gap before development resumes in the Old South Mebane neighborhood.
