Description

The WPA completed the shaft (which has been partially constructed during the 1920s) and base of bell tower on the North Carolina State College campus in Raleigh, NC, and faced it with granite. The project also included quarrying and preparation of granite in Surry County, NC, and transportation of this stone to Raleigh.
