Mordecai
is named for the family plantation on which it was developed.  This area was developed during the building boom following World War I.  Many of the streets are named for trees found in the neighborhood parks. Mordecai House (circa 1785) survives and is the oldest house in Raleigh still standing on its original location.  It anchors Mordecai Historic Park which is the centerpiece of the neighborhood.  Mordecai Historic Park showcases several important historic buildings including St. Marks Chapel, the Bager-Iredell Office, and a small gambrel-roofed cabin which was the birthplace Andrew Johnson, the 17th President of the United States.

Pilot Mill, a cotton mill, was established in the late nineteenth century and surrounded by a village for the mill workers.  Pilot Mill buildings now house Raleigh Charter High School.  The old village area has been subdivided and new homes are being built.

Just south of Pilot Mill is the new Parkview Manor, a 90-unit low-cost housing complex for people 55 and older.  Parkview Manor is the first phase of a new complex called Capitol Park which will include single-family homes, apartments, a community center and the Raleigh Housing Authority Building.
