Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, Capitol Heights Historic District is a historic post-World War II neighborhood just north of the city. It is roughly bounded by Penn Road, North State Street, Glascock Street, and Madison Road.

The subdivision was platted in 1946 and developed as a result of the postwar housing demand. Its homes are homogenous in form and design: small one-story two- and three-bedroom houses constructed in the Minimal Traditional-style. Ernest I. Clancy and George Henry Wright were the primary builders of the Capitol Heights neighborhood. Today the neighborhood represents one of the best-preserved post-war speculative subdivisions in Raleigh.

Due to its high level of integrity, Capitol Heights was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in January 2011.
