A piece of history
On a beautiful day, take your Raleigh car rental for a spin and check out some of the city's historic structures. Montfort Hall, a pre-Civil War era mansion, was built for William Montfort Boylan. This incredible Italianate style home will remind you of the architectural quality and styles of 19th century homes. The Joel Lane Museum House was built in the early 1770s by Joel Lane himself, who is credited as the Father of Raleigh. The plantation has been "faithfully restored" and is now open for public enjoyment.
The historic options don't stop with housing: If you just can't get enough pre-20th century architecture, drive out to Mordecai Historic Park. Home to the Raleigh Trolley, this park is also the birthplace of the 17th President of the United States, Andrew Johnson. Mordecai Park is located in the heart of downtown Raleigh. For another option, visit Pullen Park. Donated by Richard Stanhope Pullen, this park was once an old cow pasture, and now offers an aquatics center, arts center, community center and cafe.
