Raeford is located in Hoke County, North Carolina. It lies adjacent to Fort Bragg and lies within reach of world-class golf courses like Pinehurst.
Nine candidates have filed to run for three seats on the city council in this year’s municipal election: Cathy Brown, Jackie McLean, Shelley Wilburn, Ricky Sandy and Josh Bain are vying for election.
Raeford City Hall’s administrative offices can be found in its central business district on Main Street. Here you will also find the municipal court and utilities department as well as administrative offices for various community organizations and civic groups such as Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce.
Rockfish Creek, an east-flowing tributary of Cape Fear River, runs along its eastern boundary while drains into Toneys Creek as its southernmost component – part of Lumber River-Pee Dee River-Waccamaw River watershed – for drainage purposes. Laurinburg lies 30 miles (48 kilometers) to its southeast while Fayetteville sits 38 km to its southwest.
Filing began Friday for candidates hoping to fill one of three Raeford City Council seats up for election this year. By Monday, four names had been submitted: Cathy Brown, Jackie McLean, Ricky Sandy and Shelley Wilburn had all added themselves to the ballot – with Brown serving as extension agent with Hoke County Cooperative Extension office overseeing 4-H youth development programs at Hoke County Center; in addition to serving on Raeford-Hoke Chamber of Commerce board membership and overseeing 4-H youth development programming there. Josh Bain and David Conoly submitted their papers just before The News-Journal’s print deadline had come due on Tuesday – just ahead of deadline day printing of The News-Journal print deadline!
City Hall Library
City Hall Library is an inconspicuous gem tucked inside the historic Surrogate’s Courthouse and houses an extensive collection of books, magazines and newspapers as well as archives that hold everything from the original deed for Coney Island to Jazz-Age photos of notorious mobsters. Visitors are welcome to visit without needing a library card and take in all that it offers in its exhibition rooms or its stacks.
The first floor features the Browsing Library and Rebecca Rankin Reading Room, both offering popular collections. In addition, classes and seminars covering everything from basic computer use to more advanced topics like Microsoft PowerPoint can also be found here. Furthermore, you can search the municipal library catalog online in order to locate items within our collection – we boast over 400,000 reports, books, and documents about New York City!
As part of their experience at the Library, visitors can join one of two free tours available each month: Building Tour (one hour) and Exhibition Tour (one hour). Both provide insight into its beaux-Arts architecture while the Exhibition Tour focuses on current exhibitions. Visitors may also rent the space for weddings or other special events; Astor Hall on the first floor was named for John Jacob Astor with its grand marble staircases – it often gets booked out as rental space! In addition, Rose Reading Room and McGraw Rotunda offer stunning spaces that visitors won’t find anywhere else!
City Hall Museum
The City Hall Museum provides visitors with a unique perspective of urban life in New York by connecting them to its past, present, and future through exhibitions, research, collections and programs that foster understanding of all that makes New York unique – its diverse population, cultures and history are just some of the components explored at this institution.
The Museum is a secure facility, so all tour participants (both guest tickets and special caregiver passes) must present government-issued ID prior to taking a tour and sign a Visitor Release form before arriving on tour day. A link for submission forms will be included with your ticket confirmation email for easy submission; to ensure the safety of our guests, tour participants must comply with this security procedure; otherwise their unutilized tickets will be treated as donations to the Museum.
These tours are tailored for adults and not suitable for children, as they require walking, standing up and climbing stairs. Please arrive 30 minutes early to clear security screening.

City Hall Park
City Hall Park is a public park surrounding New York City Hall in Manhattan’s Civic Center. Formerly the Town Commons, it was transformed into a formal park in 1803. As Town Commons, it hosted public meetings after the declaration of Mexican-American War and served as recruiting grounds during Civil War; during which period, it also functioned as debtors’ prison and funeral procession route of President Lincoln.
Joseph Mangin and John McComb designed Croton Park during the 1820s. A fountain called Croton Fountain was installed at its southern tip in 1842 with an 1842 installation featuring a 100-foot basin diameter basin with an 1842 center jet that shot water 50 feet into the air. A modernized version was installed by Paul Friedberg in 1984 alongside his replicating McComb’s boundary fence design.
City Hall Park welcomes visitors of all kinds throughout the week, allowing visitors to bring food and drinks as well as use cameras without incurring an entrance fee or encountering unfriendly staff members. Furthermore, this well-kept park features numerous benches where visitors can rest. Nearby subway stations make this location easily accessible, making this must-see site for any tourist visiting New York – it offers stunning views of Brooklyn Bridge from all corners.
