When in Raleigh, be sure to check out the many historic neighborhoods in the downtown area!

Posted 07-29-2008 at 09:43 AM by North_Raleigh_Guy


As my username suggests, I live in North Raleigh. However, that does not mean I don't enjoy the beauty of the many historic neighborhoods in and around downtown Raleigh. I highly recommend people new to the area check out the areas of Oakwood, Mordecai, Boylan Heights, Five Points and Cameron Park on a nice spring or fall day. The architecture and mature landscaping to be found in these neighborhoods is quite a site to behold. I like to take pictures of historic homes as a hobby and have posted many threads on this topic here on City-Data. Below are some pictures of a couple of my favorite smaller bungalow type homes in these neighborhoods.

    Historic neighborhoods

    NRG - thanks for taking the time to share your pictures of the historic neighborhoods. It amazes me how many there are! When I first visited Raleigh I asked to be pointed to "the" historic neighborhood ... lol. We would love to live in one of these timeless beauties....
