Joel Lane Museum House

Built in the 1770s, this landmark is Wake County’s oldest existing home. As the center of the old Wake Cour t House community, it became the “Bir thplace of Raleigh” when its owner, Joel Lane, a prominent statesman and Revolutionary war soldier, sold 1,000 acres of his plantation for the formation of the new state capital in 1792. Informative guided tours of the fully restored and authentically furnished house, period gardens and dependencies are provided by costumed docents.

The Joel Lane Museum House is an authentic restoration of an 18th-century manor house. The site provides a vehicle for 21st-century Americans to reflect on what their country means to them and to understand the sacrifices made by their ancestors. Those sacrifices resulted in the freedoms we have today to worship, think, and speak as we wish.

By walking the halls of buildings that were standing while our ancestors were fighting for our freedom as a nation, visitors get the richest possible experience of the past.

Cost: $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for students, free for children under six. Hours: Wed.-Fri., 10am-2pm; Sat., 1-4pm (except Jan.-Feb., 1-4pm on Sat. only).
