Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Who or What was on the Island?

This is the island that is sandwiched in between Hillsborough St., West St., and Edenton St. I’ve often driven by and been puzzled as to why there is a chain link fence around a section of it. I’ve even walked by on a few occasions and poked around, and I didn’t see any evidence as to what the fence is currently or was formerly protecting. The only thing on the island is a sign that says something like “parking for sight and sound only”.
Does anyone know what used to be here? It seems a bit out of place currently.
