At this restored farm site, you can explore Roanoke Island life as it was more than 150 years ago. Interpreters in period attire carry out the daily activities of farm life circa 1847, including woodworking, cooking, blacksmithing and planting, harvesting and food preparation. Visitors can stroll the grounds, visit with the farm animals, take an ox-drawn wagon ride and help out with the chores. Special programs are offered throughout the year.
