"Catch a Glimpse"

Just north of downtown at 1 Mimosa Street you will find Mordecai Historic Park (919–857–4364), a former antebellum plantation. Here you can get a glimpse of nineteenth-century life and see the cabin where Andrew Johnson, the nation’s seventeenth president, was born.

Admission to tour the Lane House and Oakwood is free, but there is a fee ($) for the Mordecai tour. Oakwood can be toured at any time. The Lane House is open on an irregular basis, and Mordecai Park is open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sunday. Trolley tours ($–$$, free for children age six and under) originate from Mordecai Park Saturdays from March through December from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

"Birthplace of Andrew Johnson"

The Mordecai Historic Park and Trolley Tours offers great history not only of Raleigh and North Carolina but our country. The Mordecai mansion has great tours which guide you through the history of the area and home. You can also take a trolley tour of Raleigh afterward. Throughout the year there are fun events held on the Mordecai park grounds.
