Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Oakwood is an enchanting neighborhood of restored and carefully maintained Victorian and Antebellum homes. It offers an ideal view for a stroll. Lovely anytime of the year, Oakwood is truly at its finest at the annual Christmas Candlelight Tour and in the spring, when the gardens put on their best show. Bordered by Franklin, Watauga, Linden, Jones and Person Streets. Close to the Executive Mansion.
I stayed at the Oakwood Inn in 1996 while passing through Raleigh on vacation to the outerbanks. I walked two blocks and a very nice man on Jones St. invited us in for refreshments and shared the history of Oakwood. In 1998 I moved to Raleigh and Oakwood impressed me again with their hospitality as another kind person on Bloodworth poured us glasses of champagne. Moving to Oakwood has been my reason for staying in Raleigh, my closest relatives are in Louisiana and my other family has become my neighborhood. Oakwood has impressed my parents as well and they plan to move here as well.
