The Crabtree Jones House Needs Your Help!


Back in February this year Raleigh’s historic Crabtree Jones House was successfully moved to its new site by Preservation NC. This architectural treasure now needs to be prepped for a grand open house later this month. You can help us ‘get our house in order’ by attending the Crabtree Jones House Clean-Up from 9 am until 12 noon this Saturday, May 10, 2014.

Help us clean up the Crabtree Jones House!


At Preservation NC, “SWAT” stands for “Saving Worn-out Architectural Treasures,” and we plan to hold a SWAT Day at the Crabtree Jones House in Raleigh this Saturday, May 10, from 9am-12noon.

We’ll rake, we’ll sweep, we’ll pick up trash and more, all to get this architectural treasure Open House ready! Can you join us this Saturday? We’d love to have you! If you’re able to lend a hand, please email Lauren Werner at to find out additional details (like what to bring, where to meet, etc.) or call us at 919-832-3652 x238.

Be sure to join us for a grand Open House at Crabtree Jones on Saturday, May 31, 2014, 10 am-4 pm.
