It is the oldest period restoration of a house on Roanoke Island & includes 19th-century furnishings, some original to the house. Visitors can explore nearly a dozen buildings, such as the farmhouse, a reconstructed slave cabin, outhouse, cookhouse, smokehouse, dairy, barns, chicken coop, corn crib, woodshed, and blacksmith shop. Nearby, the family graveyard is the final resting place of Mr. Etheridge and many of his descendents, while Crissy Bowser, who lived and worked on the farm, lies buried beneath what is known as the Crissy Oak. Chickens range freely on the grounds, where you’ll also find a kitchen garden, grape arbor, island figs and a cornfield. Sheep, a cow, an ox and two banker ponies graze in the pastures.
