County Seat Government / Attractions

In Raleigh ( The County Seat ), they have 1 mayor, 2 At Large's, and 5 Districts in their government.


Raleigh is known for a lot of things, but their Museums of Natural Sciences and Art are really popular because they've been around for a while and people like to know about history of things that occurred there.
