Notes
Survey number HABS NC-404
Building/structure dates: 1880 initial construction
Significance: 301, 309, 311 Fayetteville Street Mall form a black of Italianate style commercial buildings that date from the early 1880s. They are representative of the urban growth that occurred in Raleigh in the decades following the Civil War and they continued to house a variety of small businesses, professional offices, living quarters and public halls until the 1950s. They are a part of the rapidly disappearing collection of nineteenth century downtown Raleigh commercial buildings that once hosted a lively mix of business and residential uses in a pedestrian-scale environment.
