Civic Group Fights To Save Historic House Slated for Demolition
Posted February 7, 2007
The Ligon House is scheduled for demolition after failing city codes. It was home to the late Rev. John Ligon, a respected pioneer in Raleigh's early years.
The Ligon House is considered an important historical structure in the city's black community.
A group of civic leaders recently formed the Raleigh Community Council. The group launched a campaign to save the historic house.
