Mordecai Historic Park offers a unique glimpse into early Raleigh life. The park features Mordecai House (c. 1785/1826), formerly the seat of one of Wake County’s largest plantations and home to five generations of the same family. Highlights include a collection of family furnishings, original plantation dependencies, a kitchen, and a recreated herb garden. Other attractions include the birthplace of President Andrew Johnson, the Badger-Iredel Law Office and St. Mark’s Chapel, a popular site for weddings.
