  • Great information, lots to read and learn. The museum is quite large and has a great deal of older products. The homestead itself is very pretty.
  • Nice history lesson on tobacco. Neat old homestead. Take the tour!
  • It's a pretty cool place but I wish I had taken the guided tour. You can't go in the historic buildings on a self tour.
  • Great place to learn about the aftermath and recovery from the Civil War. Nice walks and picnic options too.
  • Traces the important history of tobacco production and manufacture in the state of NC through a movie, indoor exhibits, and preserved buildings. Friendly staff, be sure to take the guided tour.
