Found in Nash County and said to have come from an area farm. Chest is painted a dark red-brown, probably original paint.

What visitors say

Visiting the Joel Lane House was like going back in time.  Thank you so much for showing us the house of Joel Lane.  Its interesting to see how the founder of Wake County lived.
