U.S. Supreme Court Justice Alfred Moore (1755-1810) of Wilmington built Moorefields in 1785 as his summer home. A two-story Federal-style house with fine overmantels, moldings and Chinese Chippendale staircase. The interior furnishings and portraits, formal gardens, and park with avenues, walks and planned vistas were left as a public memorial by Edward Draper-Savage, a University of North Carolina French professor. The property is available for use by artists, campers, hikers and picnickers, as well as for conferences, weddings and receptions. Fees are required of those hosting group events. Tours are free, however.
