Plant Shop Now Open Behind the Visitors Center

Joel Lane Museum House has just expanded its plant sales area to the rear of the Visitors Center. You may now take home a bit of “living history.” We have many extra plants that need new homes. Prices start at $3 for a 3” pot and go up to $10 for a 10” pot. Thanks to a generous grant from Pi Alpha Xi at NC State University and the hard work of horticulture student, Keith Lukowski, the offerings include pomegranate trees, rosemary, lamb’s ear, Japanese rose, and many more, all taken from the grounds. All proceeds will benefit the gardens.

What visitors say

Thank you for the excellent tour of the Joel Lane House.  I learned a lot about the history of Raleigh as well as the Joel Lane House.  I learned how harsh conditions were back then and how we take for granted things they did not have back then.  The structure of houses has really changed a lot since the Joel Lane House was built.
