In Tribute to R. Stanhope Pullen

Prior to being moved to its current location, the Pullen House was located a quarter mile west at the intersection of Falls of the Neuse and Durant Roads. The Pullen House was the birthplace of R. Stanhope Pullen, born in 1822. One of Raleigh’s most prominent bachelors, Pullen was both an astute businessman and ardent philanthropist.

Mr. Pullen was one of Raleigh’s earliest developers. He purchased a large tract of land in northeast Raleigh in the North Street-Mordecai-Oakwood area. Houses in the area still feature architectural elements from his birthplace. Landscaping was another of his passions.

Pullen is best known for his gift of land which he laid out and initially developed into what is now known as Pullen Park. He donated adjacent land for the Agricultural and Mechanical College, which we now know as North Carolina State University. As a lifelong benefactor, Pullen’s contributions of land, money, and services also benefited Peace College, UNC-Greensboro and Edenton Street Methodist Church.

As a tribute to R. Stanhope Pullen’s numerous civic endeavors, the Pullen House is available to the public as a gathering place.
