#TBT – We are throwing back to 1979, and the relocation of Raleigh’s Capehart House. The home was built in 1898 at 403 North Wilmington Street in the Queen Anne style for Lucy Catherine Capehart and her husband, B.A. Capehart.  Mrs. Capehart resided there until her death in 1908. It became the home of Sheriff H.H. Crocker until it was divided into apartments in 1947. It has served as State Government offices since 1971. It was relocated to its current location at 424 Blount Street in 1979 to make room for the State’s Government Mall. It is a designated Raleigh Historic Landmark. It is one of the finest examples of Queen Anne architecture remaining in Raleigh. Happy Thursday!
