#TBT – Today we are flashing back to 1966, and a photograph of Haywood Hall. Located at 211 New Bern Place, in the Capital District, it is the oldest residence within Raleigh’s original city limits still in its original location. Its builder, John Haywood, was the first mayor of Raleigh. Constructed in 1799 in the Federal Style, the home represents a surviving example of the early nineteenth century town homes that were once commonplace in North Carolina. In 1977, the Haywood family donated the house to the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of North Carolina. A Raleigh Historic Landmark, the house is now a museum and wedding venue, outfitted with many of its original furnishings. Happy Thursday!
