Located in the heart of Rocky Mount, the manor offers a unique in look into the early 19th century planter life in eastern North Carolina and the South.
Stonewall takes its name from the heavy granite wall that borders the front lawn along U.S. 64 By-pass. The house, set in a superb oak grove, was built on the banks of the Tar River circa 1830 by Bennett Bunn, who was a well established and prosperous planter in Nash County. In its prime, Stonewall was the center of a large antebellum plantation. Its scale and sophistication of design make it one of the truly elegant plantation houses in North Carolina.
