Our Spring 2023 meeting will be held on 14 April in Raleigh at the City Museum (CORM) at 220 Fayetteville Street, south of the Capitol and in the historic
former Briggs Hardware Store. Our gracious host will be the museum’s Executive Director and HSNC member Ernest “Ernie” Dollar. Come and bring a friend to
this special meeting and program. If parking is a concern … no worries………..much! The museum is easily accessible via on-street parking and three parking decks located within a block of the museum. Carpooling is encouraged. You can find more information on parking at godowntownraleigh.com by clicking on “Get Around”. There is also a public parking lot on E.
