Tucker Carriage House

This rare surviving carriage house, which escaped the 1968 demolition of the Tucker Mansion, has unusually detailed features for an outbuilding. The patterned shingle walls and multi-colored slate roof are typical of the Queen Anne style. The building also survived a second demolition threat, rescued through a joint effort by the City of Raleigh and Arts Together.

Date: Late 19th Century
