About

The only Chief Executive in North Carolina history to be impeached and removed from office (and the first in the nation to endure that indignity), William Woods Holden (1818-1892) was a central figure in the North Carolina's Civil War and Reconstruction era. His home stood at the location of the historical marker. Holden’s house, at the corner of Hargett and McDowell Streets in Raleigh, was razed in 1925 to make way for the Professional Building now on the site.
