Historic Oakwood Neighborhood Walk Professional Review and Guide

"Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Oakwood is one of the finest examples of late-1800s development in downtown Raleigh. This downtown walk explores the core of the classic neighborhood. The walk starts at the governor’s mansion and follows a short route that winds through the center of the neighborhood, passing many of the key historic homes in the neighborhood as well as the Oakwood Inn Bed and Breakfast, Oakwood Cemetery, and houses developed by Colonel Jonathan Heck. This charming walk through Oakwood can only be made better by adding a tour of the governor’s mansion to the schedule. Or visit the neighborhood in December, when the residents and the Society for the Preservation of Historic Oakwood hold their annual candlelight tour, and the interiors of the Oakwood homes are open to the public."
