A two-story Federal-style house with fine overmantels, moldings and Chinese Chippendale staircase. The interior furnishings and portraits, formal gardens, and park with avenues, walks and planned vistas were left as a public memorial by Edward Draper-Savage, a University of North Carolina French professor. The 70 acres of woodlands and permanent pasture at Moorefields are currently maintained as a wildlife refuge. The property is available for use by artists, campers, hikers and picnickers, as well as for conferences, weddings and receptions. Fees are required of those hosting group events.
