Eastly Hall (Shaw) on far left -
Buildings from the old Nazareth Catholic Orphanage that once stood on land that is now the Centennial Campus at NC State?
Actually, nope I’m wrong. Those above me got it as being Shaw. That is Estey Hall on the far left as can be seen here in a slightly different angle:
I don’t know what it is, but I do like the file name this time…
I belive that these are the original buildings that made up St. Augustine’s College.
Tony, you are correct! That is actually not Estey Hall on the left, but the Lyman Building at St. Augustine’s. You can see an old photo of it here for comparison.
And William, glad you appreciated the file name!
It’s the first dormitories at NC State University. They were located where Brooks Hall stands today. To the right of the picture would be Holladay Hall, the first building on the NC State campus.
That is the new Progress Energy building in the background, then closer in is the Governor’s Mansion, and of course, Newton’s Grill on the right.
