From the transformation of this building from a classroom facility for the female academy to a grand Southern residence, the Dr. Josephus Hall House tells a story of Dr. Hall and four generations of his family. Many sites include the restored kitchen building, restored slave dwelling, and a cannon once used at Salisbury's Civil War Prison.
Walk in the footsteps of the Hall family as you experience original furnishings, wallpapers, painted ceilings, and a desk used by Andrew Jackson when he studied law in Salisbury in the 1780s. Stroll the grounds of the Hall House site where you will discover the restored kitchen building (ca. 1825), the restored slave dwelling (ca. 1825), and a cannon once used at Salisbury’s Civil War Prison. With nearly 200 years of history, the Hall House has many stories to share with its visitors.
