Plan Your Visit

The site is located along a long gravel drive off of Old Oxford Highway. If you’re coming from Durham, watch for a wooden fence on the right hand side that parallels the road and turns in with the gravel drive. If you’re coming from Butner, watch for Jock road (a gravel drive to your right), Stagville Road (a paved road to the right-do not turn on this road), and the site entrance will be the next gravel road on your left! (See the map below.)
