The ornate exterior of the mansion that industrialist Jonathan McGee Heck built on North Blount Street in Raleigh starting in 1869 was recently restored to its 19th-century glory, down to the salmon-colored paint trimmed in olive green.
Listen to Myrick Howard as he talks about the Heck-Andrews House at 309 North Blount Street in downtown Raleigh. The State of North Carolina recently restored the outside of the Second Empire-style three story mansion built by industrialist Jonathan McGee Heck. The interior, however, is in a deteriorated state with crumbling plaster, fallen ceilings and a collapsing kitchen floor. The State of North Carolina is not sure if it wants to spend the money to restore the interior. Video by Richard Stradlingemail@example.com Photos by Harry Lynchfirstname.lastname@example.org
