The North Carolina Coast Sights


Poplar Grove Historic Plantation

Poplar Grove Historic Plantation Review

Take a tour of what was once the first major peanut farm in North Carolina, the 1850 Greek Revival manor house, and its outbuildings. You can also see blacksmith, weaving, and basket-making demonstrations as well as farm animals (goats, sheep, horses, geese, and chickens). On Wednesday, from 8 to 1, April through December, there is a farmers' market selling local foods, plants, and crafts. The site adjoins the 67-acre Abbey Nature Preserve, where birding and hiking are offered.
