The historic State Capitol is here, along with the Governor's Mansion and North Carolina State Legislative Building. 

What also makes the Capital District a popular place to live is its convenience to all the other Downtown Raleigh districts: Glenwood South, Warehouse District, Fayetteville Street District, and Moore Square District.
