Once one of the largest plantations in the South, with 900 slaves and almost 30,000 acres of land, Stagville is a preserved piece of history. Featuring an 18th-century house, a 19th-century house, slave quarters, and a unique barn, this historic site is dedicated to preserving and studying the plantation’s African-American culture.

In addition to offering free tours daily, Stagville regularly hosts events that add to the educational and cultural experience of the site, including lectures from experts on the lives of the enslaved and celebrations that offer a personal experience of those lives. Annual events, including Juneteenth and “Christmas at the Big House, Christmas at the Quarters," provide unique opportunities for visitors.
