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

The Emerald Jewel of Raleigh

It’s incredibly easy to overlook as a Raleigh resident, but the Greek Revival style State Capitol is one of the most remarkable gems of North Carolina architecture.

Rather than try to explain in any level of detail the significance of the State Capitol or Union Square, I encourage you to read Reminiscences of a Raleigh Boy, Part 2: The Center of Town.
