Even though the plantation owner's house was closed for renovation, we loved our tour. We had a wonderful guide who had a lot of knowledge and walked us through the enslaved people's houses and hospital as well as the dependencies of the owner's house. It is a bit off the main road but well worth the detour. It also would make a good rainy day destination from the Outerbanks. We detoured going from the Outerbanks to Norfolk. So glad we made this stop. We learned a lot and saw items we had never seen before.This would be great for kids as well as adults.
