Aycock Birthplace [NC]
Charles B. Aycock was born into a simple, rural home in 1859. In 1900 he was elected governor of North Carolina and dedicated his life to improving public education in the state. An 1893 one-room schoolhouse, moved to the site of his birthplace, underscores Aycock's commitment to education. This typical 19th-century family farm includes the main house, separate open-hearth kitchen, corn crib, and smokehouses.
The site offers a short film, exhibits, tours, demonstrations, educational programs, and occasional recreational and educational events (including living history events).
