Nice for something to do and learn about historical places and times. The verbal information given during the tour is almost better than the visuals. Good for kids too. You do have to make sure they are open before you go. Parking is free and the people are helpful and friendly.

The tour was wonderful. Completely free and full of a lot of facts and history. Get to see some very old historic homes of both the slave owners and the enslaved. Nice way to spend a few hours.

A fascinating look at at a dark period of American history. Well worth visiting. The docents are very knowledgeable and great about imparting their knowledge.

Pretty cool, but everything is locked up and you can't see in the windows. Guess you need to schedule a tour for that. It was free and interesting to see.
P.S. If you have TMobile, make sure you download a map how to get out of there as I had spotty service and had to guess.

This is a must see to any visitor of the Piedmont region of the US. We enjoyed our visit here with Laurie as our historian. This place has such great potential to become a great museum centering the experiences of the enslaved people.

Very nice site, we'll be back. The guided tours are only at 11, 1 am 3 Tuesday through Saturday. Not wanting to wait for 50 more minutes, we decided to come back. We're looking forward to it!

Attended as part of Fall Homeschool Program. Superb experience!!!!!!!! The only negative is we didnt get to participate in the Freedom Walk and we really would have loved to!!!!!
Laurie (Lori?) and Mary were excellent in their roles. Very knowledgeable and very passionate about the slave cabin and the enslaved men and women who were forced to make Stagville their new "home". They truly made the experience come alive for my daughter and Laurie was just phenomenal in explaining questions my daughter thought of AFTER program ended at 4pm! Thank you!!!
Ms. McNeil in the school teacher role was very authentic and her authoritative demeanor gave a realistic portrayal of school in those times. Loved the Greek Alphabet, writing on slate chalkboards, the hornbook and corporal punishment reenactments.
I can't remember her name, but the woman in the barn with woodcarving was also very excellent!!! My arms are stillllll aching from the sawing activity 😮🙂.
Loved making the cowrie shell jewelry and the games, exploring the cemetery and seeing those weird green bumpy apples. GREAT DAY!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!

The history was awesome. Seeing the actual buildings that shaped the course of America helps to put things into perspective. The biggest problem for me was the tour guide's personal opinion on the current political climate.

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit. We had a great guide (retired school teacher) who was very knowledgeable. Even with a large group we were able to ask all our questions.

Amazing historical place, great tour for a Saturday afternoon. One can only imagine how hard it was during those days.
