Raleigh, Then and Now: Boylan Bridge Brewpub

Built in 1949, 201 S. Boylan Avenue is an early example of Raleigh modernist architecture and was first home to Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. PPG occupied the space until the early 1970s when the building changed ownership. Now, it is occupied by Boylan Bridge Brewpub, a bar/restaurant that boasts “The best view in Raleigh.”
