RALEIGH, N.C. -- A little piece of Raleigh's historic past is returning for new generations to enjoy.
- There's a fully developed concept and partnership to turn "Cameron Village Underground" into a jazz scene.
- The area under Fresh Market used to be an entertainment venue called "The Subway".
- Pictures will be shown of The Subway Thursday at 7 p.m.
Former Mayor Smedes York, who is now the president of York Properties in Cameron Village, says they have a fully developed concept, and a partnership to turn "Cameron Village Underground" into a jazz scene.
The empty space below Fresh Market was once a booming underground entertainment venue called "The Subway". Some of the biggest names like R.E.M., Jimmy Buffet and The Ramones performed there.
Musicians are excited about the opportunity to perform in this concert venue once revamped.
"It will be in a sense like I'm reconnecting with something in the past, something that's going to come back to life," said Lydia Salett Dudley, a local jazz musician.
York is not going into details yet about what they have planned. On Thursday at 7 p.m., you can come to Cameron Village Underground to look at old pictures of The Subway.
