Oakwood, or “Historic Oakwood” is an historic neighborhood right outside of downtown Raleigh. As one of Raleigh’s oldest communities, some of the historic homes in this neighborhood were built soon after the Civil War and most homes were built between 1890 and 1930. Oakwood has two parks and a small commercial area within the district which brings many tourists and allows the residents to have activities to do.
