Course Description

Duke Homestead State Historic Site and Tobacco Museum encompass the historic home, farm, and factory buildings of Washington Duke and his family as they lived on the property from 1852 until 1874. The site interprets the early farming life of the Duke family and the beginnings of their tobacco manufacturing business on the property after the Civil War. At the event, members will watch a short film about the history of the homestead and then go on a walking tour of the property led by Duke Homestead staff. Members will be welcome to visit the museum before and after the tour as well.  Please wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes.

The Member Engagement Committee is organizing an optional group lunch after the tour. Members who register for the tour will be contacted via email for RSVP for the lunch.
