See the early home, factories, and farm where Washington Duke first grew and processed tobacco. His sons later founded The American Tobacco Company, the world's largest tobacco company. Duke and others helped create a market for Durham-area tobacco products that eventually would make North Carolina the heart of an international tobacco empire. Many profits were invested in land and industries but others were used for such humanitarian causes as Duke University, named for the family.
Children will get a tour of the home and then participate in two hands-on activities. Cost is $1.00 per person and is payable to Duke Homestead directly on the day of the tour . Tour is geared to ages 2nd grade - 5th but all are welcome. You may bring a picnic lunch. We will drive separately or you may arrange to car pull with friends.
