Mordecai is a relatively small neighborhood compared to others in the area. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in historic charm. Mordecai Park was once the home of Wake County's largest plantation, and Mordecai House is the oldest Raleigh home still in its original location. Andrew Johnson, the 17th President of the United States, was also born here. These days, Livability.com consistently ranks Mordecai as one of the best neighborhoods in Raleigh thanks to nearby amenities including restaurants, parks, and Seaboard Station within walking distance! The neighborhood has been hosting the Krispy Kreme Challenge for 14 years now, so if you would enjoy living close to downtown and in the heart of action, Mordecai is the place for you!
