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

The Graves-Fields House

The Graves-Fields house is a fine example of the Queen Anne style of Victorian architecture that was dominant at the time of its construction in the mid 1880s. Located in the Oberlin Village area, it was built by freedmen following the Civil War.

With its steep pitched roof, square turret and fish scale siding covering each gable, this is one of the architectural gems of the area. It is one of a few remaining remnants of the Oberlin Village area.

If you are ever walking in the area, you should check out the dooryard of this house. The owner always has the most beautiful flowers growing, and is very friendly and engaging in conversation.
