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.
