History & Heritage
Visit places that revisit the past
Plan a visit to North Carolina’s oldest places to experience something new. Walk in the footsteps of Vanderbilt, Hemingway and Washington at our historic sites and homes, stand in the place the sit-in movement began, pause in the ancestral home of the Cherokee or spread your wings where the Wright brothers first flew.
