Want to live downtown, but also have the feel of a neighborhood? Then Historic Oakwood might be the perfect choice for you. Tree-lined streets, friendly neighbors and historic homes make this a top choice for families, young professionals and empty nesters. Many residents are avid gardeners, giving the neighborhood a reputation for beautiful gardens, and the neighborhood is home to a popular garden tour.
Oakwood also has the distinction of being NC’s largest intact 19th century residential neighborhood. And with a short walk, you are downtown with a wide choice of restaurants and bars to choose from. Oakwood is not a place where people wave as they drive by in their cars, but a community with events throughout the year to get to know your neighbors. When checking out the neighborhood to see if it’s a fit for you, take the free Oakwood Walking Tour to learn the history of the area.
