10/08/09 114 W, 2 I - + 14 - 8 Old Map of Caraleigh

Here's a great find from a fellow history buff, an old map of the unincorporated community of Carleigh. Date unknown, perhaps 1900s? Many of the streets are still there, as well as the original Caraleigh Mills building. Most of the map was scanned from a copy at Olivia Raney Local History Library, with the rest photographed from a physical copy. Caraleigh and other sections of South Raleigh were annexed in the 1960s.

Click the second image once or twice very large versions, including an overlaid satellite image from Google Maps. Or see Sanborn Maps from 1914 in PDF format, showing some streets and buildings: index map, detail map 1, detail map 2.

Since I didn’t see one in the links above, here’s a linkable version:

Loved these old maps. My grandparents moved to Caraleigh in the 1930s & I still live there. Love the history of the area!
Do you have any other maps or links that would help me?

Thanks for your note Connie. I recommend paying a visit to Olivia Raney Local History Library in Raleigh, as they have a plethora of interesting old maps. They can also recommend other sources of Caraleigh history. Their web site with information is http://www.wakegov.com/images/library/lo..
