Hayes Barton Neighborhood of Raleigh Description:
In the half-century following World War I, a second wave of suburban development took place surrounding the city of Raleigh. The most distinguished of these new neighborhoods was Hayes Barton.
This highly esteemed neighborhood, found in the Hayes Barton Historic District and considered to be one of the Five Points neighborhoods, was developed by Fairview Realty Company and designed by preeminent New South landscape architect Earle Sumner Draper.
Draper was one of the initial designers planning suburban developments as concise design units. Additionally, he introduced golf fairway plans with intermixed housing for those at both upper and moderate incomes, created innovative mill village designs, and pioneered some of the first and most expansive greenbelt buffers- open park areas
bordering planned suburban neighborhoods.
The Hayes Barton neighborhood was plotted to allow roads to fit along the contours of the land, opening portions of it for small park spaces, many in the street medians. Both Cowper and Williamson streets are named for the former land owners; and other streets owe their names to past governors of North Carolina (such as Jarvis, Reid, Stone and Vance).
Housing styles varied architecturally and included Tudor, Spanish Colonial, Craftsmen Bungalow, Period (English) Cottage, French Eclectic/Norman Revival, American Foursquare, American Colonial, Modernist, Minimal Tradition and Ranch. Local architects such as Thomas W. Cooper, William H. Dietrick, Charles Atwood, Arthur C. Nash and James A. Salter contributed to the neighborhood.
Present-day Hayes Barton continues to thrive as one of Raleigh's historic districts and premier neighborhoods.

2000 Fairview Road
In 1993, three ambitious musicians opened a delivery/carryout-only pizza joint in the empty space of a former biker bar. They called their delicious creations 'Lilly's Pizza' after Benji Shelton's four-legged companion. Hungry fans couldn't get enough and began bringing lawn chairs just to sit outside with Lilly and enjoy her Damn Good Pizza! With time, chairs & tables became standard along with local art, interesting music, and a little Raleigh history.
