The Planning and Development Department invites you to come hear the findings from the Black Heritage and Historic Places Study: 1945-1975. The consultant, Mary Ruffin Hanbury, will present the survey findings that identify places important to Black history and heritage in Raleigh. The project includes a list of significant historic places (both existing and lost), with a special emphasis on:
- Entertainment venues
- The Civil Rights movement
- Black architects and builders; and
- The Biltmore Hills neighborhood
The study also provides recommendations on buildings and sites that are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Visit the Black History webpage for more information about the study.
