Charles B. Aycock Birthplace

A Humble Beginning for NC Governor Charles Brantley Aycock

Historical Site Featuring the Governor’s Mid-nineteenth Century Farmstead, including a Smokehouse, Pantry, Kitchen, Corn Barn, Outhouse, Schoolhouse and Stables

Charles B. Aycock was born into a simple, rural home in 1859. In 1900 he was elected governor of North Carolina and dedicated his life to improving public education in the state.

Found off the beaten path, two miles south of Fremont, the historic site features the governor’s a mid-19th century farmstead, including a house, kitchen and outbuildings. The house is furnished with pieces from the period.

A corn barn and stables recall the days when men worked the land. Sheep and fowl, a field crop, and a three-season kitchen garden bring the farm to life.

A one-room schoolhouse (1893) moved to the site represents the grassroots educational revival that became statewide after Governor Aycock’s election in 1900.

An accessible visitor center features exhibits and an audiovisual program. Admission is free.
