“Walk thru history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

WE have driven past the sign for this several years and never had the time to stop This time we did and was so glad we did so full of antiques and stories about the families and the homes. The guide was so fun we did realize the 90minutes had past so quickly Well worth the stop. AThere is even a ghost story in the butlers pantry

“First view of cotton in the field”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

We did the drive-by tour but stopped long enough to touch cotton ready for harvest. October is a good time for this.

“Great historic site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

The house is simply wonderful, filled with period pieces. And the docents are fabulous. This place is worth several visits.

“A Window into NC History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

Hope Plantation is a bit off the beaten path but it is a respectable house museum that may give real insight into colonial NC history. If you have visited plantation houses in other states, this is a good one to see and contrast your experience with. Hope Plantation is not spectacular but it is a real history lesson for fans of North Carolina history.
