Preservation North Carolina is so excited to premiere our new traveling exhibit, We Built This: Profiles of Black Architects and Builders in North Carolina, at the Greg Poole, Jr. All Faiths Chapel at Dorothea Dix Park (1030 Richardson Drive, Raleigh, NC 27603) from January 15th-February 27th.

We Built This is part of a multi-faceted educational program about the history and legacy of Black builders and craftspeople in North Carolina. This traveling exhibit highlights the stories of those who constructed and designed many of North Carolina’s most treasured historic sites. Spanning more than three centuries, We Built This provides more than two dozen personal profiles and historic context on key topics including slavery and Reconstruction; founding of HBCUs and Black churches; Jim Crow and segregation; and the rise of Black civic leaders and professionals. We Built This acknowledges and celebrates the Black builders and architects who constructed or designed many of North Carolina’s most treasured historic places.

The exhibit will be open to the public with the following daily schedule:

Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am-2pm
Saturdays from 10am-4pm
Sundays from 12pm-5pm

Masks are required inside the chapel.

We will be hosting a special PNC Day at the Dix Park Chapel for We Built This: Profiles of Black Architects and Builders in North Carolina for our members and friends on Sunday, February 20th from 12-5pm.
