Raleigh, NC 27601
Historic Oakwood is a 19th century neighborhood and historic district located near downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.
The neighborhood includes hundreds of homes and significant structures in a variety of architectural styles dating back to the late 1800s. Many have been painstakingly restored and preserved to maintain their original stature and beauty. Sidewalks and trees line the quiet streets, making it an ideal place for a walking tour during an afternoon visit.
Oakwood provides two opportunities to tour homes and gardens not generally available to the public. The Candlelight Tour occurs each December and allows access to the interior of a number of selected homes. The Garden Tour is presented once a year to display some of the neighborhood's best gardens.
