Historic Hope Plantation [NC]

The 45-acre Historic Hope Plantation preserves the circa 1803 home of North Carolina Governor David Stone (1770-1818). The main residence is Federal and Georgian in style, and contains both original and reproduction decorative arts. The plantation also contains the 1763 "hall and parlor" King-Bazemore House. The site depicts agricultural life between 1760 and 1840 in eastern North Carolina.

The plantation offers period rooms, exhibits, collections and research library access, nature trails, picnic facilities, and an annual fourth grade living history program. The website offers floor plans, fourth- and eighth-grade curricula, and a lesson plan.
