  • A little piece of history Nestled away. The committee in charge are super friendly. And the lady they have dressing up every 2nd weekend of the month is the most AWESOME woman EVER. (Ok. Little biased, shes my high school history teacheršŸ¤£šŸ¤£) but it was fun for my kids to see. My oldest feel in love with the history of the place, my youngest feel in love with the nature there. Even got to try rattlesnake meat while we were there. New experience that's for sure.
  • Harmony Hall Plantation Village is located at 1615 River Road in White Oak, NC near Tar Heel, NC. Donated historic structures line the short road to the main structure. The original structure was built around 1760 by Colonel James Richardson. Family records claim British General Lord Cornwallis commandeered the house on his way to to Wilmington during the Revolutionary war. A scenic nature trail leading to the river is being built along with campsites set back in the woods. There are facilities with power and running water on site. Due to limited resources, bring your own lunch as there are no refreshments for sale on site. Furthermore, long pants and suitable shoes are recommended.
