Cameron Park is a wonderfully diverse neighborhood with a strong sense of community. Here you find rolling hills, winding streets, open
parks, and a mulitude of home architecture. Located near the heart of Raleigh, near the vibrant Cameron Village and a step away from
major Raleigh throughfares like Wade Avenue, Glenwood Avenue and Hillsborough Street, it is a perfect location for homeowners who still
love a historic neighborhood but need the access to Raleigh's hotspots. Active neighbors meet and mingle at the annual Christmas party
and at one of the regular progressive dinners.
Developed in 1910 on land that once part of the Duncan Cameron plantation, Cameron Park was marketed as Raleigh’s first planned “sub-division”, or one of the early 'streetcar suburbs'. It quickly became the most exclusive of Raleigh’s three major early 20th century neighborhoods and was designed to attract the upper middle class. Lots sold for $1,000 to $2,500. The restrictive covenants on the lots at
the time specified that a home within the neighborhood must cost at least $3,000 to build.
