The M.T. Pope House
The 1901 Victorian row house, a registered landmark, was the home of Dr. Manassa Thomas Pope, a prominent African-American physician (a graduate of Shaw University) born in 1858. Dr. Pope was a community leader, freemason, and Spanish-American war veteran.
On the west side of the Raleigh Convention Center, more than 79,000 aluminum squares create a spectacular outdoor wall feature, depicting an image of an oak tree, which changes with the blowing wind.
Shaded by magnificent oaks, this historic park is one of the few remaining open green spaces from the original Raleigh plan of 1792. At its center is the North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Memorial.
Seaboard Air Line Railroad Building
Built in 1862, the three-story brick Italianate structure served as railroad offices for more than 100 years. The Raleigh Historic Landmark is one of the city's earliest surviving office buildings.
Center for Architecture and Design Building
This bold, modern addition to Raleigh's downtown is the headquarters for the North Carolina chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The cypress-clad building was constructed with sustainable, locally sourced materials and features a rainwater collection system and geothermal heating and cooling.
