It costs $10 to take the tour with proceeds going to support the tour's author and North Carolina Central University. Tours can be taken anytime.
The tours, which involve walking and driving, will take place on Saturday, Feb. 20, at the state historic site, which includes the remnants of one of the largest plantations in the state.
“Over 900 people were enslaved by the Cameron family in what is now part of Durham, Orange and Granville counties,” Site Manager Vera Cecelski said. “The people and profits from these massive plantations shape the history of our communities to this day.”
The tours will share how freed people built Durham by exploring the connections between those enslaved at Stagville and the early history of the city.
The in-person tours will be held at noon, 2 and 4 p.m. Each tour is limited to 12 participants and there is a $5 fee. Registration is required. Guests are excepted to wear cloth masks over their nose and mouth, wash hands frequently or use hand sanitizer and maintain social distancing.
