The slave quarters at Horton Grove

Historic Stagville preserves the remnants of the one of the largest plantations in North Carolina. By 1860, the Bennehan-Cameron family owned over 30,000 acres of land and claimed ownership over about 900 enslaved people. The work of enslaved Africans and African Americans made the Bennehan-Cameron family one of the wealthiest in the state. 

Stagville is dedicated to interpreting the lives, families, culture, and work of enslaved people on the Bennehan-Cameron plantations. Today, the Historic Site includes 165 acres of land, four original slave dwellings (c. 1851), a massive barn (c. 1860), and a Bennehan-Cameron family house (c. 1787-1799).
