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

Where in Raleigh?

Dr Andrew Goodwin House post card_web

Many of Raleigh’s venerable oak trees were just adolescents when this photograph was taken. Much has changed since the early 1900’s — our oaks have matured, our population has ballooned and examples of grand residential Neo-classical architecture such as the house pictured here simply don’t exist anymore. They’ve all been razed — all but two, that is. Any of our savvy readers know where this house is in Raleigh?

If you correctly identify the house and the address, we’ll send you a reprinted copy of the photograph. If you’re extra savvy and can identify the *other* remaining example of grand residential Neo-classical architecture in Raleigh, we’ll send you a bonus print of that too!

Good luck — Leave a comment on this page, and remember to include the exact street address in your answer.
