Guided tours provided daily of the mid-19th century boyhood home of North Carolina’s “Education Governor.” Gov. Charles B. Aycock born on this 19th-century farm in 1859. Exhibits trace the story of his life and often controversial political career.

The historic site features a mid-19th-century farmstead, including a house, kitchen and outbuildings. The house is furnished with pieces from the period. A corn barn and stables recall the days when men worked the land. Sheep and fowl, a field crop, and a three-season kitchen garden bring the farm to life. A one-room schoolhouse (1893) moved to the site represents the grassroots educational revival that became statewide after Governor Aycock's election in 1900. An accessible visitor center features exhibits and an audiovisual program.
