Local History

Raleigh residents and North Carolinians alike have always found North Hills fascinating. When the North Hills Mall was developed in 1960, it was the first indoor mall to be built between Washington, DC and Atlanta, GA. People would often drive several hours just to visit this mall! Decades later, North Hills entered a renaissance and underwent millions of dollars in modern renovations. The result is stunning, and the North Hills shopping center continues to be a unique place to visit.
