Historic Downtown Wilson welcomes you to become a part of a charming and innovative community!

A Municipal Service District (MSD) was established downtown in 1981 in accordance with state law. Owners of property located within the MSD pay an additional $.18 per $100 value on property taxes. Revenue generated from the MSD tax is used within the MSD boundaries by Wilson Downtown Development Corporation for special events, marketing, redevelopment incentives and programs to realize the vision of a vibrant downtown.

If you are looking for a property to lease or purchase

and want to ensure that it is eligible for these services,

We have several available properties that range from eating and drinking establishments, retail shops, services, and residential units. Please feel free to browse through the links below to not only see some of our available properties but to preview our economic incentive package.
