The grounds are well maintained, there are markers around that explain and identify the various buildings on the farm. There is also a small visitors center that give lessons to school age children on the environment and history of NC.

We love this park! So much history to see, gardens, farm animals, adventure backpacks, and an area for children to play. They even have some eggs and veggies set out to take a sample of. I would definitely recommend!!

Spent a nice afternoon exploring the house, buildings, trails and visitor's center, learning about life on the farm in Wake County during the 1900s. I would like to come back in warmer weather, as there were places to picnic and see more of the place.
