This is a great historical home with a lot of character. The docents do a great job of sharing this family's history with you. There are so many special events here. A hidden gem for your family any time of year.

We took the Raleigh history trolly tour and also toured the Mordecai house. Tour guides were very informative and friendly and the home and grounds were lovely. House has an upstairs portion of the tour and second floor is only accessible by lots of stairs.

This is what is left of one of the largest plantations in all of the south and certainly in all of North Carolina. The birth place of the city. The home was built in the 1700s and still stands today on its original foundations. Gain...More

Beautiful little area that will take a very fast hour. Shannon, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and so enthusiastic that you will want to do additional research on your own. Highly recommend!
