A Visit To This Gripping Historic Plantation In North Carolina Is A Somber Step Back In Time

Historic North Carolina plantations are found throughout the Tar Heel State, but none is quite as remarkable as Historic Stagville. A visit here is not only an insightful look into life in the 1800s, but also a staggering step into the life and times of one of the largest working plantations in North Carolina.

For a somber step back in time and to see a well-preserved piece of North Carolina history, head to Stagville State Historic Site. It’s located just outside of Durham at 5828 Old Oxford Highway, Durham, NC 27712. Admission is free. The hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
