If you've taken a ride through the streets of downtown Raleigh recently, there's a good chance you saw the signs for the historic Oakwood Candlelight tour coming up!

Oakwood is a neighborhood in downtown Raleigh, NC that's history is rich, with homes dating back to the 1800s. There is a continuing effort in Raleigh, to preserve the victorians built a more than a century ago. The architectural style of these homes in Oakwood is part of what makes the candlelight tour so much fun. To see how these homes were built almost two hundred years ago, takes you right back to the history of life in Raleigh.

I absolutely love
