Juneteenth at Stagville
June 19 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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. Outdoor guided tours about emancipation and the legacies of slavery will be offered at: 10 am, 11 am, 12 pm, 1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm. Reservations are not required, and tours will last about 60-75 minutes. Self-guided tours are also available all day.
Admission and tours are free for all.
Visitors are expected to follow the “Three W’s” as outlined by the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services – WEAR a cloth mask over your nose and mouth, WAIT in line at least six feet away from others, and WASH your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer. If you are experiencing symptoms of illness, we ask that you postpone your visit.
