Stagville provides a window into an important chapter in North Carolina history. This exhibit centers the experiences of enslaved men and women on the largest antebellum plantation in the state. While self-guided tours are allowed, I would recommend a guided tour. It's only $2 for adults and $1 for children. It was phenomenal. I could have listened to our guide all afternoon. She gave historical context, shared compelling stories and patiently answered questions. Be sure to check the schedule for the tour-times. I reached out to confirm the tour was happening.
If you want to enjoy this, you must pay the tour(just $2) We did the tour by ourselves because we didn't make it on time. With the tour, you are able to go inside the buildings, which are locked, and learn about the history of this place. I will come back to get in one.
