Historic Latta Plantation is a circa 1800 cotton plantation and living history farm located within the 1,343 acre Latta Nature Preserve in Huntersville, NC. In addition to guided tours of the plantation home, eleven outbuildings give visitors a glimpse of life in North Carolina from 1800 to 1865 during self-guided grounds tours.
Throughout the year, Historic Latta offers educational and school programs featuring animals, workshops, camps, re-enactments, and a picturesque setting for weddings and special events.
Guests can also enjoy handmade artisan goods, traditional toys and games, books, and more in the Visitor Center's Gift Shop. Call 704.875.2312 for more information about how Historic Latta brings history to life!
