  • Lovely spot and quite interesting. Watch the welcome movie for some historical background.
  • Old buildings and barns and open fields outside. Musuem inside
  • The museum is a very interesting look on the history and growth of the tobacco industry in the area. While neat, the grounds are where Duke Homestead really shines. They do a great job of maintaining the land and buildings - making the walk around feel like walking back a ways in time.
  • Wonder how cigarettes became a part of American life? The answers are HERE. Great little video, excellent museum. LEAVE A good DONATION if you can b/c this educational place is fab - NO, I don't work there. I live in AZ and we stumbled on this informative place while visiting our soldier at Fort Bragg. Gift shop lacks but everything else is eye-opening.
  • The history of the economic development is amazing. You won't regret your visit to the Duke Homestead.
