Street Address: 
424 North Blount Street
Date: 
1898

Lucy Catherine Moore Capehart, daughter of a prominent state legislator, had this imposing brick house with elaborate wood and stone ornamentation built on then-fashionable N. Wilmington Street. Designed by A. G. Bauer, it is one of the finest examples of Queen Anne architecture remaining in Raleigh. Gables, dormers, turrets, and intricately corbelled chimneys punctuate the irregular roofline. The state and the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina moved the house to N. Blount Street.
