It was a little ways through the countryside to get to the house but well worth it. This site contrasts the lives of the plantation owners as well as the slaves that supported the household. The story of the young owners son and slave friend who drowned in the cannel next to the house was touching. There are many fine antiques and paintings in the house. A well informed and interesting docent was our guide. Nearby is Pocosin Wildlife Refuge is near by- Great for nature photography.
