  • My mother hadn't visited the plantation since she was a girl and they used to picnic in the park while her and her siblings ran through the house (prior to it being restored). We took the whole family...  read more »

  • Don't go to Pettigrew State Park without stopping here! Beautiful plantation with signs depicting what each building/area was for. Brick walkways are uneven, as they are old, so wear good footwear! Ca...  read more »
  • It was a great visit to experience a glimpse of how my ancestors lived and survived as slaves. This was a good experience to visit a place of my family history.. I vow to move on towards freedom and exhibit love peace and happiness to all people , race, and creed. I'm a Littlejohn, Jones, Smith and therefore a Spruill descendent.
  • Thank you Lisa for educating our group to the realities of life on Somerset Plantation. Your knowledge and delivery are impressive. We appreciate your effort to provide this historical perspective to visitors whose perceptions of the times may be very different. Each of us learned much, we enjoyed touring the mansion and comparing it to the realities of enslaved living....the horrors of which we can only begin to imagine......our conversation continued after the tour. Always a good indication of a successful presentation. Thank you!!! FYI the website you provided http://goo/gl/83xXp9 does not work.
  • One of North Carolina's hidden gems. This is one of the best-preserved plantations I have ever seen. The slave buildings are incredible, especially because you get to experience the contrast between them and the master's house. Absolutely worth the trip from Edenton or the Outer Banks.
  • This was a wonderful place to visit and so informative. We received a private tour and was able to view the whole house. The old, old trees were just so lovely. It was wonderful to see the slave quarters and hear about their life. A wonderful authentic out of the way place to visit. I will be going there many more times. I suggest buying a book or two to learn about the slave's life in N.C.
  • I didn't know what to expect. But, I was amazed at the detailed descriptions of the people that lived on the plantation and what their lives were like. I highly recommend the tour.
