Historic Stagville is a state historic site that includes the remnants of the one of the largest plantations in North Carolina. The Bennehan-Cameron family owned approximately 30,000 acres of land, and claimed ownership over about 900 people who were enslaved on this property. Stagville is dedicated to teaching about the lives and work of enslaved people on the plantation. Following a tour of Stagville, join the Triangle Land Conservancy on a 2-3 mile hike at their Horton Grove Nature Preserve, which protects over 700 acres of land connected to the historic site.

Field Trip Details:
