Uniquely Somerset: LIVE!

This form helps ensure we are reaching as many people as possible from Alamance to Yancey counties. And your information remains private. Only the starred fields are required.

On February 5, 2020, we explored the rich and complex stories of the people and spaces that make up Somerset Place, one of the largest plantations in North Carolina’s antebellum history.

Discover who and what made Somerset Place exceptional and how we know about this site’s unique history and the people—enslaved and free—who lived here. To supplement your students’ learning experience, check out this Mancala Craft and Game Activity; or use the Tar Heel Junior Historian article and graphic organizer to reinforce the video.
