Everyone knows one of the best things about traveling the country in an RV rental is all of the interesting day stops you normally wouldn’t make. After your family has your North Carolina motorhome rental loaded up we recommend you make a trip to Haywood Hall.

Haywood Hall makes a great first stop for your family’s cross-country adventure because it is located right in the city of Raleigh! Construction on the famous Haywood Hall began first back in 1799 in the state’s capital. Since John Haywood was a member of the Council of State he was required to live in the capital city. His original property included the entire back of the street. His grounds also included a barn, gazebo, privy, kitchen-smoke house, and servants’ quarters. This is now the oldest house in Raleigh, NC to remain on its original foundation.

Haywood Hall itself is a two story creamy white home with dark shutters decorating each and every window. In the spring and summer months, you can also be assured there will be beautiful flowers lining the stone walk way that leads up to the front door. This is a great place to stop with your family to observe late 1700s architecture. This building is also known to be the backdrop for hundreds of family holiday cards and engagement announcements every year.

Because the house is so historic, unique and sought after the city only allows one day a week for visiting hours. The home is open from March through December on Thursdays between 10:30 – 1:30 p.m. There are also several rented-out events that are going on at Haywood Hall throughout the year. There is no charge for admission, and you can tour the gardens year round.

Even though Haywood Hall is only a short day trip on your family’s great adventure we do recommend stopping by since it is located in Raleigh, North Carolina, where you pick up your new RV rental at Brown’s Recreational Rentals.
