  • I couldn't make it to the guided tour this year but did go to the open house where you can view the house on your own. The grounds are well kept and I was surprised there were still flowers in the gar...  more »

  • We love this spot so much we got married here! Take a tour of the house and grounds, stroll the garden! Let your kids catch Pokemon! We love this park so much we got married here. The houses and grounds are maintained very well and all the guides we've used have been quite knowledgeable about its history. Come by and still the grounds, take a tour, have a picnic and relax. It's on the Raleigh Trolley route (starts here)...a great time if you've not experienced it yet.
  • Went here on my 2nd grader field trip in December. I was very amused on the history of the family and the home in it self. A lot of the original furniture from the Mordecai family is still in the home, in very good condition. The tour guide we had was very knowledgeable on the history of the family and home . I honestly had a good time. I will return with the whole family next visit.
  • It's was an awesome visit full of very interesting facts & history of the area. We did enjoy our time there.
  • Great Historical Site with guided tour! There are beautiful brick walking trails that are lighted. There several buildings as well as all types plants. Behind the main house one of the most interesting features is the kitchen garden and grape vines. There is also a Historic Trolley Ride stop just outside the front gate, for a small fee.
  • 4th Sunday of the month, the church on the property is open for a singing congregation, very nice hearing them sing. Had a guided tour that was terrific, so much history. This is a must see in Raleigh. Walk the grounds too! Love the trees!!

Where to stay in Raleigh

Staying downtown provides the most convenient access to Raleigh's leading attractions. You'll find a couple of large, efficient hotels here--they feature a large volume of beds. The area around the North Campus of North Carolina State University lies just west of downtown and features a handful of additional hotels. A cluster of national chain hotels and motels lies in the midtown area north of downtown. There are a couple of bus lines that provide easy access to downtown from here, so this area serves as a suitable option if you cannot find accommodation in the city center. The intersection of I-440 and Route 70 to the northwest of downtown features numerous hotels and motels, but these largely cater to business travelers who require convenient access to both downtown and the airport.
