Pumping Station House

  • Address: 3215 Wade Ave., Raleigh, NC 27607
  • Area: West Raleigh/N.C. State Univ/PNC Arena

About

This unassuming house on Wade Ave. is secretly a water pumping station owned by the City of Raleigh. Due to pumping stations' tendencies to be ugly and noisy, the City built the station with extra padding to sound-proof it and a facade to hide it in plain view.
