Fun place to take little children for a walk. Walking through the park is free, but to see the house, one has to take a tour.

There was electricity in the old house! That is my son's first memory. Along with the trolley with no seat belts. He and my wife enjoyed themselves. They went with a home-school activity.

Beautiful home and lovely grounds. We visited with Tobacco Road Tours and Brad Kennedy was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Interesting to history buffs of all ages.

They have a wonderful little chapel great for small weddings. The historic buildings are well cared for and it's worth taking a tour.

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

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

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
