Owner description: This pioneer farmstead, tucked in the Reems Creek Valley, features the birthplace of Zebulon Baird Vance, Civil War Governor of NC. The five-room log house and its outbuildings are furnished to evoke the period from 1795 to 1840. Vance's military and political career as Civil War officer, North Carolina governor, and U.S. Senator is traced at the homestead. Also included is the history of Vance's famous mountain family.

The exhibits and tour are very interesting. I would suggest a cool afternoon to visit because there is little shade to walk around in. Make sure you do the short tour of the house---it is very interesting.

Wasn't so much interested in the history of the Vance's but it was a really nice fall day and the buildings were very interesting. Nice fall day tour.
