Page-Walker Arts & History Center

The “Page-Walker Arts & History Center” is about 5 minutes from my house. It sits right next to downtown Cary. The center looks like a mansion stands next to the rail road tracks that cut through downtown Cary NC.

Here is a bit of the history of the center.

“The Page-Walker Arts & History Center was built as a hotel in 1868 by Town of Cary founder Allison Francis Page. In 1979, the Page-Walker Hotel was listed on the National Register for Historic Places. In 1985, a citizens’ group, Friends of the Page-Walker Hotel, joined with the Town of Cary to save the deteriorating building and restore it as an arts and history center. Today, the center is alive with classes, events, performances, meetings and receptions and the gallery exhibitions feature works of local and regional artists.”

The center is an old style mansion brick structure.

This little tool shack is part of a garden behind the main center. The wood construction of the shack  nicely blends in with the garden.

A nice hidden corner behind the center.
