The Mordecai House is a must visit if you enjoy history/historic buildings. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and there were interesting tidbits of information along the way. Parking is free, which was a nice change for downtown Raleigh.

The guided tour was very comprehensive. Our guide (Jacob) was extremely knowledgeable. Altogether a wonderful tour. The buildings are well preserved and reflect the stories of their times.

Found this in trip magazine at hotel. Very interesting. Wish we could have done tour but tours were over by the time we arrived but it was still fun to walk around and read plaques.

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.

More than a museum or 'old house tour' here. Make time to walk the ground and the gardens as well Considering the family was in the house until the 1960's it really gives one insight into Raleigh society. The tour included the outside as well...More
