  • This little gem of a park located in southeastern Raleigh is a little off the beaten path but worth a couple of hours to explore. The grounds are beautiful with a grove of pecan trees, a pond and hist...  read more »
  • The aspect that I like most about NC is the fun day trips that one can take! My kids loved this park. It was outside, lots of space to run, and a chance to teach them about our nation's great history! 
  • This house and park is a great park showcasing Raleigh's rich agricultural history. Their special events such as their Christmas Open House with horse and carriage rides and hot cider are part of many...  read more »
  • Very interesting historic look at agriculture in North Carolina from the 1800's to mid 20th century. Authentic house, barn and cotton mill from the 19th century. You can listen to a self guided tour on your cell phone. Knowledgeable staff and quiet surroundings, great for families. Don't forget to pet the goats!
  • Great place to enjoy a nice peaceful afternoon and teach kids about some of the history of Raleigh. A fun place to learn for adults too.
  • Such a great place to visit, and often empty after the historical buildings close in the evening. Great Pokemon park.
  • Beautifully well kept historic place from the early 1900s? Late 1800s? They have grape vines, a cotton field, a pecan tree grove, a vegetable and herb garden, a wash house/kitchen, a horse barn, a servant's house, the main house, and a cotton preparing/holding barn. Fun place to visit and walk around, great place for photos, and they are VERY photographer friendly there, that is so nice. Beautiful white fences everywhere, and very well kept grounds all over. Would make a good place for you to rent out for an event as well. Definitely one of the hidden jewels of Raleigh, NC that most people don't even know about. I have personally been here for a worker-toured elementary school field trip, an antique car show, and to photograph people at least a dozen times. Great place. Workers are super friendly and gracious. Definitely come to visit...
  • Great little park tucked away in Raleigh. Many wonderful things in such a small place. Pecan groves, and grapevines, and many other little secrets here. I picked a bag full of pecans for the holiday season this year.
