You're from here if you've heard this one from Raleigh's very own Franky and the Damons.....from the 60's.

The top of the Holiday Inn DID turn! I was up there. I remember all that North Hills stuff. I wish I could find photos of that old mall online. I loved the World Bazaar. Remember the Cafeteria at North Hills? I used to go with my parents every Friday night.

Something new to me is the updated iMaps page on Wake co. real estate site. You can see aerial shots dating back to 1981.

I am a Cary girl… but def have some Raleigh memories!!! I am also a child of the '80s and please forgive if any of these are repeats!

^^I DO remember the cafeteria at North Hills!!!
-I was born in the OLD Wake Med
-I remember making special trips with my mom to the Hudson Belk downtown
-Also I have stood by Thalheimers=>Hechts=>Macys
-I remember before RBC, before the DPAC, before even a new and improved Civic Center there was Dorton Arena!!!
Cary Stuff-
-I remember going to Cary Village before it became Cary Town Center
- I remember when my biggest association with Panther Creek was really good sledding!
-I can remember when O'Kelly Chapel, Alston Ave, Yates Store and Green Level Church were all at least partially dirt road.
-I can show you the location of the ORIGINAL Green Hope School and my Grandmother was part of the graduating class of 1943.

Hmmm…. that might be all for right now! I'm sure I'll think of more later…. this is a neat thread!

I was born at Wake Memorial (Wake Med) in its early years. I'm one of Dr. Annie Louise Wilkerson's many babies. The nursery was segregated, which surprised my mother. 25 years later, I had my son there! (My daughter joined my mother & my sister as Rex babies. 3 different location!)

I remember going to North Hills a lot. Daddy always had to get something at Cokesbury. I bought my wedding dress at Bride's World. We always ate at the K&W and then went to Hickory Farms to get samples.

I'm feeling my age!

WONDERFUL!! Also, I love seeing the Ralston-Purina silos in South Raleigh the way they used to look--you'd always pass them on the way to the beach!

There are a couple of old pamphlets from the EARLY North Hills Mall days in the Facebook group I mention above. But these from 1982 (love the "Let's Get Physical" headbands on the girls ) are wonderful, more my era! I might even have been working at Ragamuffin's restaurant at the end of the mall on this very day! I see Ivey's was still Ivey's, not Dillard's! And I remember Will's bookstore (it was my competition later when I managed the Waldenbooks in the 1990s--which was not even built yet in 1982). And the best hot dogs on the planet were from SCOTTY'S! I ate there at least 4 days a week when I worked in the mall! I also remember going to Cub Scout days in that exact spot of the mall, when I was younger.

Yay for North Hills MALL!
