TOUR INFORMATION
Tour #1 - Mendenhall Plantation   603 W. Main Street - Jamestown, NC 27282
Saturday, June 21, 2014 - 9am-11:00am
Mendenhall PlantationBuilt in the center of Old Jamestown, near the intersection of what were then known as Federal and Union Streets, Richard Mendenhall’s house served as a gathering place for residents and a stopover for travelers.  This home exemplifies the community of Quaker tradespeople and farmers who actively opposed slavery, promoted education for all, and labored to create a life of peace and simplicity during troubled times.

The complex, with its 1811 house and fine old bank barn, cluster of outbuildings, and a tanning table where Richard Mendenhall carried on his tanner's trade, is on the National Register of Historic Places.  The barn houses a restored false-bottomed wagon used to transport slaves during the underground railroad movement.

Meet at First Friends Meeting at 8:30 am to caravan to Mendenhall Plantation.  Cost of tour:  $3.00 per person cash or check at the door.  Please bring good walking shoes since there are steps and uneven ground.
