This state museum property began as the site of a Works in Progress community-building, crafted from river rock. Today, the grounds include two early 19th-century log cabins, an amphitheater, and picnic areas. Situated on the banks of Mill Creek, fly fishing during the delayed harvest season, is another way to enjoy the property. Through a partnership with NC Wildlife Resources Commission, take advantage of the Tackle Loaner Program available to children 16 yrs. of age and under. A fun, family-friendly activity.

Sundays on the Porch include free musical performances. Other special events and festivals, including the annual Pioneer Day Festival, are part of their annual event programming. Check the website for details.

The site is owned and operated by the N.C. Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.
