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

The Wilmont

UPDATE: The Wilmont Declared ‘Unfit for human habitation’. Read more here.




There is almost always something new to look at while driving by The Wilmont. The Christmas lights are usually on all year round. There are also frequently mannequins propped up on a few of the balconies.
The most interesting part? It’s the first apartment or other living space that I am aware of that has its own myspace page. The complex is around 70 years old.
What are some of the more memorable items you’ve seen on the various balconies of the Wilmont?
