Hear the Results of the Black Heritage and Historic Places Study

You are invited to join City staff and Mary Ruffin Hanbury, as they share findings from the Black Heritage and Historic Places Study on November 30. Through an architectural survey, the project focused on historic places (both existing and lost) from 1945-1975. 

There was special emphasis on historic places such as: 

  • Churches
  • 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. The survey was completed in partnership with the Raleigh Historic Development Commission and consultant Mary Ruffin Hanbury. 

To read the final report and provide comments, please visit the Black History webpage to learn more about the study.
