RALEIGH LANDMARKS

The city of Raleigh is named after Sir Walter Raleigh, who attempted the establishment of the famous lost Roanoke Colony. After the American Independence, the city of Raleigh was chosen as the capital of the state of North Carolina. 1,000 acres of land were sold by Joel Lane, a planter in North Carolina, for the purpose of building the city.

The city is home to many historical and cultural landmarks which are frequented by the tourists and visitors. Notable among these is the State Capital building and The People’s House. Both structures date back to the 19th century.

State Capitol

The State Capitol building is, without doubt, the most iconic structure in the city. The present building dates back to 1840, although a previous building had been built in its place which dates back to 1794. The original building was burnt and destroyed in 1831 and the present building was erected in its place.

The current Capital building features the Greek Revival architecture in its outlook. It is listed as a National Historic Landmark.

A number of architects including William Strickland, Alexander Jackson Davis and others contributed to the construction of the present building which cost more than $500,000 at the time. The building remained the home of the state government until 1888, being the seat of the state assembly.

North Carolina Executive Mansion

The North Carolina Executive Mansion is another stunning and iconic structure located in Raleigh. The building was originally constructed as a resident for the city governor. The start of the building’s construction dates back to 1883, a year after Governor Thomas Jarvis petitioned for a suitable resident for him.

The Mansion is also famously known as ‘The People’s House.’ It features a beautiful Victorian architecture with a focus on the Queen Anne cottage style. The building features a slate roof, a number of porches and turrets, with vast outdoor grounds. The interior is also equally mesmerizing, feature elaborate woodwork. The first North Carolina governor to live in the mansion was Governor Daniel Fowle.
