Join us for a two-part Shelter Series:
Shaw University’s Estey Hall, Celebrating 150 years
Shaw University’s Estey Hall is 150 years old this year and marking the milestone with a host of events. Preservation NC is partnering with Shaw University to present a two-part “Shelter Series” event – “Celebrating Shaw University’s Estey Hall.”
August 29th’s presentation with Fred Belledin, Principal at the architectural firm Clearscapes, and Kevin Sullivan, Vice-President for Real Estate and Strategic Development at Shaw University, will discuss the architecture of this stunning Italianate structure. We will also discuss the considerable investment made by the National Park Service in helping preserve Estey Hall for the next hundred years.
September 12th’s presentation will be a roundtable discussion about how Estey Hall served as a coed residence hall when first built and today contributes to the contemporary landscape as administrative offices and community resource. Raleigh’s past, present and future are reflected in this grand structure – so join us for Preservation NC’s salute of Estey Hall at 150 years.
Registration is FREE, but required.
