Old Raleigh Post Office (Early Office Building)

This small frame building is a rare surviving example of Raleigh's antebellum Greek Revival commercial architecture. The beaded siding, heart-pine flooring, and early mantels remain intact. Moved several times, the Raleigh Historic Districts Commission brought it to its present site in 1972 and restored it in 1976. Open to public.

Date: ca. 1847
