There's a feeling of a small town community right in the middle of downtown Raleigh. Historic Oakwood is a community of homes most of which are dated from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s. There's a continuing effort to preserve the Victorian architectural style from a century ago. The immaculate care of the exterior of a home is only a prelude to the beauty and attention to detail given to the interior.
Tour the properties at your own pace in any order. Homes are staffed with docents inside to enlighten you on the rich history of each property. Get ready to take a walk through the past this holiday season as thirteen properties in the Historic Oakwood neighborhood open their doors to visitors during the 47th Annual Historic Oakwood Candlelight Tour.
