The History of Raleigh, North Carolina

Named for Sir Walter Raleigh, North Carolina’s capital city has the distinction among the fifty state capitals as having been totally planned. Prior to its being built in 1792, the city was laid out in a square with one-acre parks at each corner. The State House was placed in the center of the square.

The first new inhabitants were government officials and their families. These first residents took great pride in their new capital, which was reflected in their homes and gardens as well as in their government buildings.

As the city has grown, the downtown area, with its surrounding residential neighborhoods, parks and greenways, has been maintained as originally planned. In 1975 Raleigh was named the first Green Survival City in the United States.
