1887 Public Laws: Chapter 103

Public Laws of the State of North Carolina Passed in 1887 - Page 200-201.

Whereas, the city of Raleigh purchased from the state of North Carolina a part of the lot formerly known as the "Old Governor's Mansion Grounds," at the price of ten thousand dollars ($10,000), the same being a full price and more than could have been realized at the time of purchase or since from any other party; And whereas, the said city has at great cost improved and devoted the said lot to the purposes of a graded school; And whereas, there is adjoining said lot a vacant and unused lot belonging to the state, which is greatly needed for the comfort and enlargement of said school: therefore,

The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:

Section 1. That the governor of North Carolina be authorized and directed to convey to the city of Raleigh that lot or parcel of land adjoining the Centennial Graded School lot and bounded as follows, to-wit: By South Street on the north, by Wilmington Street on the east, by Worth Street on the south, and by said Centennial Graded School lot on the west, containing about one and one-fourth acres, the same to be used by the said city for public school purposes and no other.

Sec. 2. This Act shall be in force from and after its ratification.

In the general assembly read three times, and ratified this the 26th day of February, A.D. 1887.
