In late Summer 2007 the founding editors of New Raleigh met in a backroom at Mitch's Tavern. The agenda for the evening was a few rounds of beers and conversation about the then nascent online venture. Although our backgrounds were varied, we all shared a love for culture and the up and coming city of Raleigh.
New Raleigh was created as a way to celebrate and support localism and highlight the many individual contributions to the growing city. We think we succeeded at a scale we never could have imagined. While that love for Raleigh has never faded - the time to stop publishing New Raleigh has come. We are excited to move our focus to new professional projects and growing familes.
Thank you to all of the writers and editors that have contributed over the years. To the local community and everyone who has read the site and created a lively conversation in the comments section, we owe you a huge 'Thank You.' This simple website has opened many opportunities for us. We have made great friends and created so many professional relationships that made New Raleigh possible. We will continue to be involved in the local scene and look forward to seeing Raleigh's future.
Thank you so much for your support,
Jedidiah Gant & David Millsaps
