Explore one of North Carolina’s most spectacular examples of early 1800s architecture, tour the exquisitely restored 10,000-square-foot house and recreated grounds boasting one of the few preserved urban slave quarters in the country. The mansion does not boast a pure architectural style, but shares elements of Greek Revival, Neoclassical and Italianate styles. Originally built in 1861 as a prominent family’s residence, this museum now features changing exhibits.
