Study Trip – Stagville State Historic Site

Stagville State Historic Site near Durham was one of the largest plantations of the pre-Civil War South. The Bennehan-Cameron family owned approximately 30,000 acres of land, and claimed ownership over about 900 people who were enslaved on this property. Our guided tour of the site will include the Bennehan House, the Holman House (a four room enslaved family dwelling) and the Great Barn. The four enslaved family dwellings on the site will provide an educational setting for our docent to talk about how enslaved families lived and worked on the plantation. Lunch at a nearby restaurant is included.

Note: Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather conditions as you will be outside for a large part of the tour. Participants should be comfortable with walking on unpaved surfaces and uneven ground. Bring a refillable beverage bottle to keep you hydrated throughout the day. The study trip will proceed rain or shine.

Includes: Transportation by NC State school bus, tour and lunch.
