State Bank of North Carolina
Raleigh's oldest surviving financial building housed the first state-sponsored banking institution in North Carolina. Architecturally, the building represents the transition between Federal and Greek Revival styles and features handmade brick as well as granite window sills and lintels. It is the oldest masonry building still standing in Raleigh. Most notable are the matching two-story porticos supported by columns of stuccoed brick on the building's east and west facades. Owned by the State Employees Credit Union, the building is open during the credit union's operating hours.
