We went to see the oldest and the most famous house in Raleigh where the United State's 17th President, Andrew Johnson, was born. It is located in the Mordecai Historic Park and is accessible for tours from Tuesday till Sunday. There are also some other historical buildings to be found in the park, including a church and a separate kitchen (to avoid fire).

It is quite an interesting and relaxing place, with old architecture and nice sights.
