It lies in close proximity to major cultural and educational facilities, including the Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences, the Veterans’ Memorial at Jack Laughery Park, and the Braswell Memorial Library (all one block west) and the Rocky Mount campus of Edgecombe Community College (two blocks south).
