The site provides visitors with the opportunity to step back in time and view what life was like in the North Carolina backcountry.

Our Products
Historic Latta Plantation is a living history farm and historic site and the last remaining Catawba River Plantation open to the public. Originally known as Latta Place, the 742 acre cotton plantation was home to the James Latta family until 1837. The Sample family owned the home from 1853 until 1922, renaming the plantation Riverside, because of its proximity to the Catawba River. Today, Latta is a living history farm and museum that brings history to life for visitors of all ages.
