Historic Oak View County Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Historic Oak View County Park is 5 miles east of downtown Raleigh, and it is definitely worth the trip. The incredibly preserved 27-acre farmstead can be explored along more than a mile of paths. This trail starts at the Farm History Center, a museum with exhibits for adults and children that tell the story of farming in North Carolina. From the Farm History Center you follow an easy and level path that is mostly paved with cobblestone and brick. You pass a historic barn, the main farmhouse, and the water tower and head to the oldest building on the property, a plank kitchen with an herb garden growing outside. From the garden you pass a cemetery, where many of the farm owners through the years were laid to rest, and continue to the cotton museum, with a fine example of a cotton field growing out front. From here the trail circles around and returns to the trailhead in front of the Farm History Center."
