Thomas Day State Historic Site (Future Site)

North Carolina's newest State Historic Site is coming soon!

Thomas Day, a free Black man, came to Milton in the 1820s. There he produced furniture and other wood pieces for esteemed clientele. With help from the enslaved people on his property and free artisans living with him, his influence on other craftsmen is seen around the state. As of February 2024, the workshop was designated as a State Historic Site. Site themes are craftsmanship, social history, economic history, education and life of Free African Americans within the state of North Carolina.
