Description

Historic Stagville offers volunteers an opportunity to teach visitors about one of the largest plantations in the Southeast, and work on ongoing genealogy research pertaining to the enslaved community

Historic Stagville, located in Durham, NC, is a state historic site with three main historic buildings: a 1789 plantation home, an 1860 three-story barn, and a unique two-story slave dwelling. The plantation was initially owned by Richard Bennehan, but later became a joint venture with the Cameron family, whose name is tied to Cameron Avenue and Cameron Village in Raleigh. Guided tours of these buildings are given, as well as educational programming for school groups regarding slavery and life on the plantation. Ongoing research is also being done regarding the large group of enslaved people living on the plantation, as many of the descendents live in the area and bring in new information to add to the genealogy.
