Built in 1785, this is the oldest residence in Raleigh on its original foundation, and is a registered historical landmark.

Its original owner, Moses Mordecai, a lawyer was descended from a prominent Jewish family. His grandfather, (1707–1781) emigrated from Germany, and was not only one of the original three hundred  Jewish  families in the US, but was one of the few Ashkenazic families. Jacob Mordecai, Moses’ father, founded a girls’ school in Warrenton, NC. Descendants of Moses lived in the house until 1967 when the city purchased it and Raleigh Historic Sites Commission developed it as a historic park, preserving many original Mordecai furnishings, as well Mordecai family papers and library.

Part 2: Historic Jewish Raleigh – one hour van tour

Historian Barbara Freedman will lead a tour highlighting historic locations of Jewish Raleigh going back to when the first Jewish families settled here.
