The city of Raleigh was established in 1792, shortly after America gained her independence from England. The city was named in honor of navigator and historian Sir Walter Raleigh. Sir Walter Raleigh was also the leader of England's first attempt to colonize the Americas in 1584.

Raleigh, North Carolina has the only government seat to have been established on land specifically purchased by the state for its state capital . The city's founding fathers called Raleigh the “City of Oaks,” and dedicated themselves to maintaining the area's wooded tracts and grassy parks.
