Historic Oakwood Candlelight Tour
- Address: Oakwood Ave., Raleigh, NC 27604
- Area: Downtown Raleigh
There's a feeling of a small town community right in the middle of downtown Raleigh. Historic Oakwood is a community of homes most of which are dated from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. There's a continuing effort to preserve the Victorian, Queen Anne and Craftsman architectural styles of these homes from a century ago. The immaculate care of the exterior of a home is only a prelude to the beauty and attention to detail given to the interiors.
Your annual opportunity to tour the interior of some of these homes happens each December during the Historic Oakwood Candlelight Tour®. Homes are staffed with docents to enlighten you on the rich history of each property. Tour the properties at your own pace in any order.
