The Capehart House
One of the oldest Queen Anne-style houses in Raleigh, the Capehart House was completed in 1898. The historic home is adorned with dormers, turrets, and towers as well as tan brick, ornate woodwork, and stained glass. The home was originally located at 403 North Wilmington Street and was designed by architect Adolphus G. Bauer. Today, the Capehart House is located on Raleigh's Blount Street and is home to the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina.
Backstory and Context
In 1971, state offices moved into the building. In 1979, the neighborhood around the Capehart house was being demolished for the construction of the state capitol complex. Thanks to preservationists and others, the Capehart House was saved and transported to its current location on Blount Street.
