About Stonewall Manor

Stonewall Manor takes its name from the heavy granite wall that borders the front lawn along U.S. 64 By-pass. We are located near the Falls of the Tar River in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.  Built circa 1830 by Bennett Bunn, a well established and prosperous planter in Nash County, Stonewall provides unique insight into the Antebellum Plantation Lifestyle of the South. Stonewall's scale and sophistication of design make it one of the truly elegant plantation houses in North Carolina.  


In its prime, Stonewall was one of the largest plantations in the area, with its main crops being corn, wheat, rye and cotton.  It was also recognized as having some of the most beautiful gardens of any plantation home in the state.  Stonewall remained a prosperous plantation until the end of the Civil War and the abolition of slavery.  Without unpaid labor, planters could no longer maintain the necessary systems that characterized the antebellum South.

Today Stonewall is open to the public for tours (see website for dates/times). The home is on the National Register of Historic Places and is administered by the Nash County Historical Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of Stonewall Manor.  We also offer groups a beautiful location for teas, receptions and other civic and social events on a fee basis.
