Directions: From the Capitol, downtown, follow New Bern Place east for 1.5 blocks to the house.
This Federal-style frame house was built by State Treasurer John Haywood for his family in 1799. Descendants occupied the house until 1977, when the property and furnishings were left to The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of North Carolina.
It is the oldest house within the city limits of Raleigh that is on its original site.
The gardens are both lovely and functional. They, as the house, have been the site for numerous weddings, receptions, and other social functions during John Haywood's time as well as the present.
