Originally founded in the 1830s and once encompassing more than 900 acres, Historic Oak View County Park is a historic farmstead listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Included on the site are five historic buildings: c. 1825 Plank Kitchen, c. 1855 Main Farmhouse, and the Carriage House, Cotton Gin House, and Livestock Barn, all c. 1900.
A day at Historic Oak View County Park offers visitors a variety of cultural, educational, agricultural, and recreational activities. This 27-acre site includes a number of historic buildings and the Farm History Center, a museum dedicated to telling the story of North Carolina's agricultural development. Visitors are also welcomed to enjoy the park grounds by strolling through the pecan grove, fruit orchard, and herb garden, picnicking, or fishing in the pond.
Historic Oak View County Park's mission is to interpret the agricultural heritage and rural history of North Carolina through educational programs, special events and exhibitions, while also providing recreational opportunities.
