Historic Tour -- Life in the Old South Tour
As a contrast to plantation life, we also explore the life of a small tobacco farmer at Duke Homestead. From this humble site, Washington Duke built a tremendous tobacco company. Costumed interpreters will demonstrate 19th century life and southern farming techniques.
After lunch on your own at Cracker Barrel, we tour Bennett Place, the site of the surrender between Generals Sherman and Johnston that ended the Civil War for the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida.
The final stop is the charming and authentic Patterson’s Mill Country Store. In addition to their vast collection of mercantile antiques, you may browse their rich offerings of down home foods, crafts and nostalgic collectibles.
