House in the Horseshoe
West of Sanford, NC
Website: nchistoricsites.org/horsesho

This plantation home (circa 1770)— named for its setting in the horseshoe-shaped bend of the Deep River—was attacked in 1781 by British loyalists. The walls still bear scars and bullet holes from the encounter. Antiques from the Colonial and Revolutionary War eras now grace the grounds, which also include a visitor’s center and picnic facilities. Battle reenactments are held annually in August.
