Oakwood is a nineteenth century neighborhood and historic district located near downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. The neighborhood includes hundreds of homes in a variety of architectural styles. Many have been painstakingly restored and preserved to maintain their original stature and beauty. Additionally, many residents are avid gardeners and have created and maintained wonderful gardens. Sidewalks and trees line the quiet streets, making it an ideal place for a walking tour during an afternoon visit.

Oakwood provides two opportunities to tour homes and gardens not generally available to the public. The Candlelight Tour occurs each December and allows access to the interior of a number of selected homes. Also, the Garden Tour is presented once a year to display some of the neighborhood's best gardens.

Additional neighborhood information is available on this website and may be accessed using the navigation links on the left side of the page. Also, a walking tour pamphlet can be obtained at the Capitol Area Visitor's Center (click here for more information). The pamphlet includes a map of the neighborhood and interesting details regarding a number of homes.
