Preservation North Carolina has advocated for the revitalization of historic Blount Street for decades and we’re thrilled to see its comeback! Join us for our THIRD tour of the Blount Street historic district which will feature SIX newly restored houses!
Stroll along historic Blount Street and also tour five more houses that have been carefully renovated for a variety of new uses:
Lewis-Smith House (1855) – renovated as offices for Hobby Properties
Higgs-Coble-Helms House (1878) – renovated by Blount and Dargan Williams as a health and wellness clinic
Russ-Edwards House (1901) – renovated for Gallery C
Francis-Shepherd House (1903) – renovated by the Francis Law Firm
Lamar-Brown-Arthur House (1896) – renovated by Matthew Brown as a private residence
The Blount Street Preservation Celebration is part of PNC’s Fall Symposium at Shaw University in downtown Raleigh, November 7-8, celebrating our new headquarters in the Hall & Graves-Fields Houses on Oberlin Road. Separate registration for the Symposium can be found here.
This event is casual. Please wear comfortable shoes for walking as the houses are spread across several blocks. Free street parking is available after 5pm or in the two parking lots around the Norris House.
