Raleigh’s Cameron Village Renamed to The Village

In a closely divided vote, one of Raleigh’s most affluent neighborhoods has voted to change its name. Residents of Cameron Village voted 240-201 to change the neighborhood’s name, which references the Cameron family, once one of the largest holders of enslaved people in North Carolina. The decision came after months of tense debate. The new name is simply “The Village.”
