North Carolina's State Historic Sites
North Carolina is a state rich in history, and its 22 state historic sites help to tell its story. Visiting these sites, you not only learn about North Carolinas history but also experience the states scenic diversity and natural beauty. These sites chronicle more than six centuries, from the ancient Native American civilization at Town Creek Indian Mound to the marvels of technology showcased at the North Carolina Transportation Museum. Tributes to the states agrarian roots are found at the antebellum plantation at Somerset, the early-20th-century Horne Creek Farm, and the homestead of tobacco magnate Washington Duke. Sites at Bath, Edenton, Halifax, and Brunswick reveal aspects of the states colonial period. Fort Dobbs recalls the time of the French and Indian War, while the bullet-scarred walls of the House in the Horseshoe are reminders of the bitter internal struggles during the Revolutionary War. The CSS Neuse, Forts Fisher and Anderson, Bentonville Battlefield, and Bennett Place all help portray the story of North Carolina during the Civil War. Other sites honor individuals such as Charlotte Hawkins Brown, Zebulon Vance, and Thomas Wolfe.
