Built in 1774, the stone building is the oldest house in Mecklenburg County and visiting the homesite feels like you took a 250 year trip to the past. In 1949, local chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution began the preservation process and a second stage of restoration began in 1969.
The “Rock House” is the main spectacle but the site also includes a reconstructed log kitchen, springhouse, herb garden, and the American Freedom Bell. Located behind the Charlotte Museum of History, a visit is well worth the time of any history lover. And please be sure to take time to check out the Museum of History itself, there’s an abundance of important and interesting information awaiting eager minds.
