A Look Back At Raleigh

Prior to the American Revolution, New Bern had been the capitol of North Carolina. However, New Bern was too vulnerable to British attacks. So, in the late 18th century, Raleigh was constructed to be the new capitol of North Carolina.

After the Civil War, the city's growth stagnated for several decades. However, by the time the 20th century rolled around, Raleigh was growing again. Throughout the 1900s, Raleigh would expand greatly, acquiring its first radio station in 1922, its first airport in 1929, and its first TV station in 1953.

For the past 50 years or so, Raleigh and surrounding communities have grown rapidly, and the city is now larger than ever.
