Historic Stagville is a state historic site that includes the remnants of the one of
the largest plantations in North Carolina. The Bennehan-Cameron family owned
approximately 30,000 acres of land, and claimed ownership over about 900 people
who were enslaved on this property. Stagville protects a fraction of the land from
that plantation, including original slave quarters (1851), a massive barn (1860),
and a Bennehan family house (1787-1799). Stagville is dedicated to teaching about
the lives and work of enslaved people on the plantation.
