#TBT – Today we are throwing back to 1967, and a photo of the North Carolina Executive Mansion before the fence was constructed. The mansion is situated in the Blount Street Historic District, Raleigh’s most fashionable neighborhood between the Civil War and World War I. Construction of the mansion was begun in 1883 by prisoners from the State Penitentiary, and the building was completed in 1891. The Victorian Style mansion was constructed from native North Carolina materials. In 1970, the building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Happy Thursday!
