Welcome to Y Guides and Princesses!

How, How! Patches have arrived in the gift shop. We think you are really going to like them. They sell for $3.50 each. If your group numbers more than 15, please call ahead to schedule your tour. Tours are available on Saturday afternoons at 1, 2, or 3 pm. Please allow about an hour for your visit. If you would like to come on Sunday afternoon, please call or click on contact to make an appointment.

We offer special tours of 30 to 45 minutes in length for guides and princesses. After the tour, we will provide about 15 minutes of hands-on history for you and the children. Everyone will have the opportunity to touch and explore reproductions of 18th-century artifacts. It will be a fun-filled and educational experience for all ages. Afterwards, come back to the gift shop to purchase your patch. Admission fees are: adults, $5.00; students $3.00; children under 6 free.

After your visit, plan to visit a nearby restaurant for a treat. We hear that Char-Grill on Hillsborough Street has great milkshakes!

What visitors say

Thank you so much for leading us on a guided tour of the Joel Lane House! I had no idea that the kitchen was separate from the main house, and how different the two are. I had always assumed that the most dangerous job for a slave was in the fields, but your expertise showed me that the kitchen (because of the heat and potential for fire) was actually the most dangerous for a slave woman…
