Stagville is the site of the largest antebellum plantation complex in North Carolina. By 1860, this lands, owned by the Bennehan and Cameron families, spread out over 30,000 acres (47 sq. miles) and was home to over 900 enslaved people. Our goal is to provide a balanced interpretation through tours and special events that tell the story of free and enslaved people who called Stagville home.

Depending on the weather this can be wonderful or oppressive. Step back in time and learn about early life in Durham County. Usually visitors have the property to themselves. It's like having a private tour. Stagville is rustic. You can spend as much time as...More

Great history lesson. Guide was knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. Seeing the plantation house was great and very informative about Plantation life before and after the Civil War. Minus one star for having to drive to the slave cabins and barns. It took away...More
