From its location on the Perquimans River, the Newbold-White House tells the story of Abraham and Judith Sanders, a colonial Quaker family. Dating to 1730, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house is authentically restored and features period furnishings, enormous fireplaces, pine woodwork and a winding corner stair. Period furnishings help recapture the rugged charm of early 18th-century life. A seasonal garden features herbs and flowering plants used by early settlers for dying, medicinal purposes, culinary uses and decoration. The Newbold-White House hosts a number of events during the year including the annual Hearth and Harvest Festival, the second weekend of September. The Museum Shop features an eclectic array of merchandise including locally handmade toys, pottery, jewelry and books on local history. A picnic site is available.
