Todd Johnson’s book, Historic Wake County: The Story of Raleigh and Wake County for wholesale and retail purchase. Wholesale purchasers should contact CAP. From time to time, CAP also offers other new and “vintage” books on preservation topics. CAP members receive a 10% discount on all online store purchases.
