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 touring us around the Joel Lane House. Our architecture and the way we live has come a long way throughout the years. You really gave us great information on what life was like back when Joel Lane was alive. They lived in very harsh conditions with no heat or air condition which would be very tough today. I appreciate all your help and time put in to tour us around the house.
