Historic Stagville is a state historic site that includes the remnants of the one of the largest plantations in North Carolina.
The Bennehan-Cameron family owned approximately 30,000 acres of land, and claimed ownership over about 900 people who were enslaved on this property. Stagville protects a fraction of the land from that plantation, including original slave quarters (1851), a massive barn (1860), and a Bennehan family house (1787-1799).
Stagville is dedicated to teaching about the lives and work of enslaved people on the plantation.
Guided tours are available Tuesday through Saturday. To tour Stagville, you must have a car or other vehicle.
