Almost a thousand people were freed at Stagville at the end of the Civil War. How did freedom come? What did emancipation really mean? What hopes, dreams, and fears did freed families have?

On Juneteenth, Historic Stagville invites visitors to remember emancipation and explore the history of the struggle for freedom on one of North Carolina’s largest plantations. Outdoors guided tours about emancipation and the legacies of slavery will be offered between 10 am to 4 pm. Self-guided tours are also available all day.

Admission and tours are free for all.
