Historic Oakwood Homes for Sale

Historic Oakwood was originally part of the Henry Mordecai Plantation. After the Civil War, in 1867, Mordecai donated a parcel of land to be used as a Confederate cemetery. This cemetery would later be known as Oakwood Cemetery.

The rest of the wooded land was known as "Mordecai Grove." This land was sold off in residential lots to individuals and developers. This area also later took on the name of the cemetery and became known as "Oakwood."

The Oakwood area began its development in the 1870's. The development grew slowly with most homes being built between 1870 and 1930.

Oakwood was originally home to the city's middle class business owners and politicians who worked in downtown Raleigh and could walk home to Oakwood in the evenings.

Following World War I the automobile allowed people to live in the outskirts of Raleigh and the character of Oakwood changed to one of boarding houses and apartments as original families moved away.

The area continued to decline and fell into disrepair. In 1970 and 1971, the restoration of several homes lit a neighborhood revitalization. Residents banded together to block major thoroughfare planned through the center of the Oakwood neighborhood.

These residents formed the Society for the Preservation of Historic Oakwood. Their efforts paid off and in 1974, the City of Raleigh designated Oakwood in the National Register of Historic Places as its first "local historic district".

Today the neighborhood of Oakwood and many of its restored homes, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The style of homes in Oakwood are varied and yet somehow similar. Most of the owners of Oakwood homes have put forth focused effort to preserve their original style and beauty. There's a great mix of Victorian styles that are brushed with a nod to southern charm.

A home in Oakwood can be priced anywhere between the high $200,000 to over a million.

As the only intact nineteenth century neighborhood in Raleigh, living in Historic Oakwood is lifestyle choice. The community is warm, close, eclectic, and fun. Oakwood is wonderful.

Other Inside the Beltline subdivisions include Boylan Heights to the Southwest, Hayes Barton to the Northwest, and Cameron Park over to West.
