Historic Stagville is a state historic site that interprets the lives, culture, and labors of enslaved people on one of the largest plantations in North Carolina. By 1859, over 900 people were enslaved across the 30,000 acres of the Bennehan-Cameron plantations. Today, Stagville preserves 165 acres of former plantation land, four original slave dwellings (c. 1851), a massive barn (c. 1860), and a Bennehan family house (c.1787). The historic site researches and interprets the stories of enslaved people and their descendants. The site is open Tuesday through Saturday for interpretive tours, public programs, and research. Stagville is in the NC Division of Historic Sites, part of the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
