This is a must see site when in the Raleigh Durham area. It's an authentic - not a recreated - southern plantation, one of the largest in the south at the time. They offer a great 1 hour+ guided tour several times a day (call...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.

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...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,...More
