"The existing Prices Fork Historic District, listed on the National Register in 1991 , remains eligible under Criterion C in the area of Architecture as ""a group of well-preserved structures depicting the growth of a town at an important fork in a turnpike from the late nineteenth century into the early twentieth century ."" The Prices Fork Elementary School, built in 1950, and two neighboring houses built in 1940 and 1953 are associated with this historic pattern of development and are, in their own right , good examples of their respective architectural forms. These three resources were part of the cohesive village of Prices Fork during the period of significance, which spans from 1871 to 1953. The expanded district boundaries now encompass the Prices Fork community' s historic core in its entirety."
