This 71-acre state historic site, located in Durham County, was once North Carolina's largest antebellum plantation and one of the South's largest. It belonged to the Bennehan-Cameron family, whose combined holdings totaled approximately 900 enslaved persons and almost 30,000 acres by 1860.
It features the Bennehan House, several original two-story slave dwellings, the Great Barn (a massive timber-framed structure built by enslaved craftsmen) and a family cemetery.
The site is part of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources (www.ncdcr.gov).
Events at Stagville and other state historic sites, along with state history museums and art museums, are listed at www.ncculture.com.
