History as well as grand homes await you on this walk through Oakwood and Mordecai Historic Park. In addition, you can take a short 1/4-mile side trip through Oakwood Cemetery, rich in Civil War history as well as history related to the city of Raleigh. Taking a walk through historic Oakwood lets you see an urban community that has moved full circle from its founding in the 1870s, to its decline in the 1920s and 1930s, and then to its revitalization one hundred years later. Special attractions: Grand historic homes, many listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and Mordecai Historic Park.
