This is a great historical home with a lot of character. The docents do a great job of sharing this family's history with you. There are so many special events here. A hidden gem for your family any time of year.

We took the Raleigh history trolly tour and also toured the Mordecai house. Tour guides were very informative and friendly and the home and grounds were lovely. House has an upstairs portion of the tour and second floor is only accessible by lots of stairs.

Beautiful little area that will take a very fast hour. Shannon, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and so enthusiastic that you will want to do additional research on your own. Highly recommend!

My husband and I chose this location because it was close enough for everyone to get to. We still haven't had a chance to hold our wedding ceremony yet. It's really homely.

We have been in the summer and over Christmas- both times have been informative and interesting. The Christmas candlelight tour is cozy and educational for both parents and kids. I appreciated the portrayal of the slaves and how the holidays were not celebrated by all-...More
