This article was originally posted almost exactly one year ago, on February 15, 2008. Since then, there has been little fight to save the building and in the last few weeks before its demolition, a handful of sources are starting to identify with the historical aspects of the building. In only 2 more years it would be eligible for nomination to Historic Registers but sadly it will make way for a massive Justice Center that could have been built around it. Clearscapes Architect Jon Zellweger, who wrote the original article, has been quoted in the News and Observer recently regarding the building and will be on WUNC’s The State of Things on Friday. It is with all the influx of new information that we present to you the original article in its full glory.
