Continuing on my tour of must see buildings of North Carolina is Stonewall Manor. Located just outside my Home town of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, Stonewall Manor is one of the rare Plantation mansions that survived the Civil War and General Grant`s slash and burn march through the south. The mansion, which overlooks the Tar River was built by Bennett Bunn back in 1830 and after his death in 1849 it passed through several other owners until abolition of slavery in 1868. Most of the surrounding land was sold off but the house itself still remained. Today the Nash County Historical Association owns the house and it has been fully restored back to its 1840 hey-day along with several of the surrounding buildings. Tours are open year round except around Christmas, showing you life on a plantation farm before the Civil War. Most plantation homes like this were destroyed during the civil war by General Grant but this house survived so it`s a rare a sight anywhere in the south. If you`re wanting to see what life was like in the early to mid 1800`s then the Stonewall Manor is the perfect place to find out!
