45th Annual Historic Oakwood Candlelight Tour

  • 418 North Person Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

Residents of Historic Oakwood invite North Carolina on an intimate tour of 12 Oakwood homes for the 45th annual Historic Oakwood Candlelight Tour. Homes featured in the tour date from mid-1800’s to early 1900’s, and range in style from Queen Anne cottages to Neoclassical Revival and Italianate residences.

Attendees will witness a mix of holiday décor, either mirroring the home's yesteryears or matching the modern lifestyles of the homeowners. Docents at each stop offer insider information about the home’s unique features, the family lineage and surrounding community.

Ticket holders are welcome to tour the properties at their own pace, typically allowing three to four hours to view all the featured homes and the neighborhood. Tour benefits the nonprofit Society for the Preservation of Historic Oakwood.
