We had an hour to kill as we waited for a flight out of Raleigh. The Mordecai plantation had good ratings and was near the airport so we headed there. The historical homes were well preserved (and air conditioned) and furnished/decorated with original furniture, paintings and dinnerware. The tour guide shared delightful stories about the 5 generations who lived in... 更多
Wonderful experience guided by knowledgeable Docent. We learned a lot about Raleigh in the time period of the home. This was the largest plantation in Wake County and is the oldest house in Raleigh on its original location. The house has much of the original furniture still in it and the buildings have been restored and well maintained.
Beautiful home and history in this little pocket of Raleigh that you may have passed by or strolled through the park on occasion. A guided tour took us through the home and the history of the families that have lived there, names that you would recognize for their contributions to our State. This was a pleasure!
We loved hearing the history of this home that had stayed in one family from the earlyb1800's till the 1960's. A lot of original furniture is still in the home. Our guide was marvelous and told us a lot about the house, family and how they lived. There is also several smaller homes and a chapel, including president Andrew Johnson's... 更多
Visiting from New Jersey and passing through Raleigh we only had a few hours to learn about this interesting city. We love learning the history of North Carolina and I am so happy we made the spontaneous decision to spend our time at the Mordecai House. The oldest residence in Raleigh and built in 1785 it truly is a living... 更多
I took my parents here while visiting them for something to do together. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and confident with the information as well as personable. We enjoyed learning and hearing the history of this family as well as seeing how they lived at this time in history.
We had company in town again so took them on the Raleigh Trolley from Mordecai House. It is about a one hour tour packed with historic and fun facts about Raleigh and the early days as well as current information. The tour guides do a fantastic job pointing out the high points. A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon... 更多
This might not be the most beautifully furnished home but it is very authentic for a home that was lived in until, I think, 1960s. The tour gives good insights into Raleigh's history. It is worth going to.
I enjoy visiting "haunted" places although I've never seen a ghost, so I decided to check out the Mordecai (pronounced \ˈmȯr-di-ˌkē\) House and park. The tour is $5 per person and well worth the money. After the tour, you're free to roam the grounds. I lucked out and found the gardener in the heirloom garden and got to pick her... 更多
