We were in Raleigh for a wedding, and had a morning free, so went to this park. Had a great guide and enjoyed learning about the Mordecai family and history of Raleigh.

The trolley tour left from here with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable college age guide. You see a lot of cool stuff besides historical buildings. The house tour is very interesting and informative, placing you in the historical context with a live, knowledgeable docent.
