MORE DETAILS:

See the early home, factories, and farm where Washington Duke first grew and processed tobacco. His sons later founded The American Tobacco Company, the world's largest tobacco company. Duke and others helped create a market for Durham-area tobacco products that eventually would make North Carolina the heart of an international tobacco empire. Many profits were invested in land and industries but others were used for such humanitarian causes as Duke University, named for the family. From the Museum to the First Factory, from the Pack House to the Kitchen, you just can't get enough of the place the Duke family came to call "The Homestead."
