Great history!

I toured the home and park. The docent was very friendly and knew her history! I really enjoyed the property.

This park is a wonderful tourist venue on a number of levels- a beautiful, historic residence dating back to the 1700's, and a grouping of buildings brought in to create a period retrospective of Raleigh from that era. The City of Raleigh has done a great job in recreating a village tableaux dating back almost 300 years. The original residence... More

I always take my kids on educational field trips in the summer. We drove an hour from home and arrived at 11 as tours are always on the hour. All the doors were locked. A lady came to the door at the visitor center and said there was a school tour going on so it was closed to the public.... More

Mordecai Park had been recommended to me years ago so I made a point of visiting while in Raleigh recently. We arrived around noon but all the buildings were locked and two docents were sitting on the steps of the main house. There was a sign on the gift shop where you purchase tickets that a school group was on... More

St. Marks Chapel is a small chapel in Historic Mordecai, The park is a great place to visit and the Chapel is the best kept secret in Raleigh if you want to have a small intimate wedding with 40-50 guests.

We had a tour guide through both the Mordecai House and grounds. She was very knowledgeable and shared information about the family. Our group of 14 may have been just a bit large for the house tour, would be better with a group of 6-8, but still enjoyable. I walked away knowing more about antebellum life in North Carolina.

The area where this is located is so beautiful. The museum house is well maintained and there is a lot to see on the sight. We took the Trolley tour so got to see even more of the area we stayed in. Raleigh is the Oak City so many oak trees there.

This was a pretty cool place to stroll around. There was a gift shop and several historical buildings to peek at. But sadly, there was a school tour and I couldn't access anything. Maybe next time!
