Mordecai Historic Park
The Mordecai House at Mordecai Historic Park is the oldest residence in Raleigh on its original foundation. Historically, the Mordecai house and grounds were once the seat of one of the largest farms in Wake County, encompassing more than 5,000 acres. The oldest portion of the home was built about 1785 by Joel Lane for his son Henry. Seven years later, Joel Lane sold 1,000 acres immediately south of the house to the state as the site of the new capital city of Raleigh. The house takes its name from Moses Mordecai, who twice married into the family of Henry Lane, first to daughter Margaret and after her death to her sister Ann. Before his death in 1824, Moses Mordecai hired William Nichols, then State Architect, to enlarge the original house. This addition is considered a significant work of Nichols, who had previously overseen the remodeling of the State House. In 1826, with the completion of the four new rooms, the Mordecai house was transformed into a Greek Revival mansion. The Mordecai’s were prominent in local and state affairs. Jacob, Moses’ father, founded a girls’ school in Warrenton, North Carolina. Moses was a prominent lawyer and member of the 1805 Court of Conference. Moses Mordecai had two sons, Henry and Jacob, and one daughter, Ellen, by his first wife and one daughter, Margaret, by his second. Henry was a prosperous planter at Mordecai House and served in the State Legislature. His daughter Margaret and her descendants owned and occupied Mordecai House until 1967.

Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the subdivision and sale of Mordecai lands helped feed Raleigh’s expansion as a city. In 1867, Henry Mordecai donated a wooded parcel east of the city to establish a Confederate cemetery; another plot became the county’s first Hebrew Cemetery. The adjacent Oakwood Cemetery, chartered in 1869, eventually lent its name to the large suburb that developed in the adjoining wooded land, earlier known as Mordecai Grove. In 1974, Oakwood became the first neighborhood in Raleigh to be listed in the National Register Sales of Mordecai property continued until 1967, when the house and its surrounding block were put on the market. Spurred by local preservationists, the city purchased the property, turning it over to the Raleigh Historic Sites Commission to supervise and develop as a historic park. Mordecai Historic Park is now managed by the City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation Department. The Mordecai House is a designated Raleigh Historic Landmark. Today, the park is open to the public for tours Tuesday through Saturday 10am -4pm and Sunday 1-4pm. For more information contact the park office at 857-4364.

The Tucker House
The Tucker House was built in 1914 for Garland S. Tucker, owner of G.S. Tucker Furniture Company. The home was donated to the City of Raleigh by the Tucker Family in 1975. At that time, the home was located one block west, at 420 N. Blount Street. It was moved to its present site by the City and renovated as a Community Meeting House. Many house furnishings have been donated by families of deceased members of the Oakwood Community. Today the downstairs portion of the Tucker House is available for weddings, receptions, meetings, small conferences and other approved functions. For more information contact Elaine Ford at 831-6009 or Lynne Mullins at 857-4366.

The Borden Building
The Borden Building is one of the two remaining buildings on the former campus of the Methodist Home for Children. Built in 1900, it was the home of the Superintendent of the Orphanage and later served as home to hundreds of children. Purchased by the City of Raleigh in 1982, the house and its companion, Fred Fletcher Park provides a wealth of history and tranquility in an urban setting. The Borden Building was extremely renovated in 1992 and is presently available for weddings, receptions, meetings, small conferences, and other approved functions. For more information contact Janet Plummer at 831-6430 or Lynne Mullins at 857-4366.

In addition, rental boats will not be rented during inclement weather. Boat rental operations may again take place 30 minutes after a storm has passed. High winds resulting in small white cap conditions will preclude boat rental operations from taking place. Again, it is a good idea to call ahead to determine current conditions. Winter rentals (Jon boats and Pedal boats only): Boat rentals from November through March will be based on the 100 degree rule, which was taken from the Coast Guard method of analyzing hypothermia scenarios. Both the water and air temperatures will be taken on a daily basis. If both temperatures combined add up to 100 degrees or more, then boat rentals will be allowed. If the combined water and air temperatures fall below 100 degrees, then no boat rentals will be conducted.
