Cast Away on New Adventures in Wilmington & Island Beaches
This 19th-century historic farmstead interprets North Carolina's agricultural heritage and rural history via educational programs, special events and exhibits. Although the farmers, crops and livestock are now gone, the land and its remaining buildings still tell the farm’s story. A day at Oak View offers a variety of cultural, educational, agricultural and recreational activities. Visit the Greek Revival-style Main Farmhouse (circa 1855); the Cotton Gin House (circa 1900) to learn about cotton farming; the Plank Kitchen (circa 1825) to see how cooking was done more than a century ago; and the Farm History Center, the only modern building onsite, for an overview about farming in North Carolina. Other historic buildings are here, too.
