In September of 2012, WALTER founding editor Liza Roberts wrote that she wanted to create a magazine focused on “embracing and reflecting all that’s great about this City of Oaks.” Well, 10 years later, we’re still at it — and never at a loss of stories to tell. Month after month, we share images and articles that reflect the same dynamic, fast-growing Raleigh that inspired WALTER Magazine a decade ago.
Thank you, readers, for being with us on this journey. We’ll continue our work of capturing the people and culture that make Raleigh so unique — in the faith that 10 years from now, there will still be more amazing stories to tell.
Read on for a look at some of the iconic stories, subjects and imagery that have filled our pages.
