Garland H. Jones Building – 1960 (Demolished)

  • Status: Demolished in 2009
  • Location: Corner of Salisbury and Martin Streets
  • Architect: Howard Musick

Originally the First Federal Savings and Loan Building, the Garland H. Jones Office Building was used by Wake County until its demolition in 2009.

The Garland Jones Building was Downtown Raleigh’s most extravant example of mid-century architecture. The glass curtain wall with alternating patterns of blue tinted glass was a significant departure from the classical structures which dominated the skyline at the time it was built.

Despite undergoing renovations at several points in its lifespan, Wake County found it unsuitable for their needs, and was in need of a new court house. It was demolished in 2009.
