Have you ever wondered what Southern plantation life was like in the 1800s? Step back in time and learn about a fascinating tale of love and war and the strength of a Southern family.
Located on the Trent River, we welcome you to a period in time nearly 200 years ago. Built in 1824 by Simon Foscue, Jr., the plantation house has been in the family for nine generations. The décor is high-style antebellum and retains a number of original furnishings. In addition, the family has continued to acquire antiques which are correct to the period. Placed on the National Register of Historical Places in 1971, it was one of the first in North Carolina to be so designated.
It is definitely a tour you won’t want to miss. With three floors and a working basement, cemetery, garden, forest, plantation land, and the Trent River at the back of the property, there is certainly much to see.
