The Rogers-Bagley-Daniels-Pegues House is a two-story Greek Revival frame building with distinctive Italianate accents, of  the few surviving antebellum structures in the southern part of the original area of the city of Raleigh. The house is distinguished by a bracketed entablature of unusual detail and a notable doorway and screen dividing the center  hall. The house was associated with a series of leading figures in local, state, and national history including congressman Sion H. Rogers, legislator William Henry Bagley, journalist and Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels, and educator Albert W. Pegues. Now owned by Shaw University, the house was rehabilitated in 1999 and is used for offices.
