We visited Stagville, while visiting Cary, NC from Seattle. We found it on line and it sounded interesting. It was. The tour guide was very informative and invested in sharing the history, though our group was really too big; we missed a lot of what she said, because we couldn't hear! The information center was the most interesting, in some... More

This is a little known historical gem in Durham. Formerly a working plantation, original house, slave quarters, and the most beautiful handmade barn ever seen.

Off the beaten path, we missed it the first time we looked. Very interesting and several antebellum buildings remain. Sites are spread out. Be sure to see everything. Take bug spray especialy in the barn area. Free.

One would think the homestead of the family who represent such a huge influence on Durham's development would really be focused on the plantation wealth, its evolution, and the family's philanthropy and influence on the area, but it seemed the tour was primarily concerned with the lives of the slaves on the plantation and their living quarters, which although interesting...

This is a very nice site, but there seems to be something lacking. Site management seems to feel cheated by not getting more attention, but they need to realize that they actually have to work at getting that attention. Just because you're a historic location doesn't mean everyone should go to your site

Stagville is a 30 minute drive from Raleigh, or at least from North Raleigh where we were coming from. It's North of Durham. We went on one of their music festival days. They do these all summer. It wasn't crowded. They had a nice bluegrass band playing near the slave cabins as well as some craftspersons. The slave cabins are... More

We visited the Stagville Plantation and loved it. Despite this attraction being listed in Raleigh, it is actually north of Durham. The grounds are beautiful and have nice walking trails, but the guided tour was the best. The tour visits three sites, the plantation house, the slave quarters, and the large barn. The tour guide was great, and all three... More
