This one-of-a-kind site features some of the finest examples of early 19th century Quaker architecture in the South. Be sure to see the circa 1811 home of Richard Mendenhall, an early Quaker abolitionist, tanner and horticulturalist; an authentic "false-bottom" wagon that was used to help fugitive slaves escape north to freedom; the circa 1817 Lindsay House, one of North Carolina's earliest medical schools; a historic circa 1805 Pennsylvania-style "Bank Barn," the only historic example of this building type open to the public in North Carolina; one of the most representative collections of Native American points from North Carolina.

Join us as we share the rich history of the Jamestown community and learn about the contributions of local Quakers to industry, education, and freedom.
