4.3.8 Historic Resources

Created by the State of North Carolina in 1792 as a

planned capital city, the area encompassing present-

day Raleigh has a rich and diverse history. This

history is interpreted through several properties and

programs managed by the Parks, Recreation and

Cultural Resources Department with the purpose of

protecting and programming museum and historical

resource facilities, programs, and other cultural

assets within the City of Raleigh. In addition, the city

oversees three of Raleigh’s oldest public cemeteries as

well as several smaller, unmarked grave site properties

throughout the city. Weaving together these historic

assets can be used to develop a compelling and

engaging city-wide narrative.

Goal 1: The City of Raleigh will continue

to support historic resource preservation,

protection and acquisition.

Goal 2: The City of Raleigh will interpret

the community’s history through its historic

properties, museums and programs in such a

way as to attract more use and visitation while

balancing stewardship and conservation of

resources.

Goal 3: The City of Raleigh will continue

to support, preserve and restore the city’s

historic cemeteries

.

Goal 4: The City of Raleigh will support

the interpretation of our historic public

cemeteries in a manner that will ensure

stewardship and conservation of these
