Crabtree Jones House – A Conversation with Myrick Howard – SRP003

Myrick Howard, President of Preservation North Carolina, shares the journey to save Crabtree Jones House.

Built around 1810 by Nathaniel Jones. who was known as Crabtree Jones, it sat happily on a hill for over 200 years, a couple of miles from downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.

Then progress threatened in the form of a new apartment complex. Destruction of the Crabtree Jones House was a clear and present danger.

Preservation North Carolina, with cooperation from the Raleigh Historic Development Commission, hatched a plan to take the home on a short but challenging journey to safety.

The plan was a success and Crabtree Jones House has been beautifully renovated by the new owners.
