  • 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...  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...  more »

  • Gorgeous place with all the historic relevance. Rich greens and lovely ambiance. Highly recommend!
  • I felt that this field trip was traumatic for my child. She expressed concern about picking cotton and the implications that it related. The host downplayed an event that was very important to North Carolina history. Slavery was a sad part of history but it was not portrayed as such with this field trip. If I could give less than ZERO that is what I would rate this park! This is not a park, it felt more like a PLANTATON!!
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
