Raleigh names four new landmarks

Posted December 7, 2011

— The Raleigh City Council issued "historic landmark" status Tuesday for four new locations.

The Cameron-Maynard-Gatling house at 504 E. Jones St., constructed between 1860 and 1865, is one of the oldest houses in the Oakwood Historic District. 

The Free Church of the Good Shepherd, located at 110 S. East St., was first occupied on Easter Sunday, March 28, 1875. It was built by members of Christ Episcopal Church who broke away to create a "free church" where church pews were not sold to raise money.

The Odd Fellows building, at 115 E. Hargett St., was constructed in the late 1800s. It is the earliest known building still standing associated with an African-American benevolent or secret society in Raleigh.

The Raleigh Bonded Warehouse complex, at 1515 Capital Blvd., one of the earliest, largest and best-preserved commercial warehouses in Raleigh. The first part of the complex was built in 1923, and it was expanded in the 40s and 50s.

    It seems as though a landmark should be kept up. I would imagine there are special stipulations to this designation. I hope upkeep is one, but in this crazy world, you never know. Does anyone know what "historic landmark" status confers upon a structure?

    Letting the raleigh bonded rot is not historic. Empire does not preserve.

    I always thought Raleigh should have put up an historical marker next to the apartment I lived in in college. Many of the greatest parties that ever happened in Raleigh happen there. I mist up every time I drive past it.

    The Raleigh Bonded Warehouse is an eyesore. Fitting it is on Capital Blvd inside the beltline, the entire corridor is an eyesore.
