Person Street is home to several stately homes, but one in particular wasn’t always on Person Street. The Garland Tucker house at 414 N. Person Street once sat precisely one block west at 420 N. Blount Street. With all of the growth downtown over the past few years, there has been an increased interest in Raleigh’s older architecture — specifically what we’ve lost.
The City of Raleigh Museum will host Goodnight Raleigh’s publisher and history editor, Raleigh Boy, this week for a photo presentation on Raleigh’s lost architectural treasures. The event will take place at the COR Museum, 220 Fayetteville St., Wednesday, March 11, at 7.00 pm in the museum’s gallery. Admission is free.
