Historical records from the Newbold-White House property, report that a vineyard once adorned the grounds. In addition to many other restoration projects on the site, thirty-seven Muscadine vines of the Carlos variety were planted in the fall of 2007. The concept is to recreate the vineyards and eventually sell and produce a variety of grape products grown from the vineyard.
During the colonial period, most people lived on farms and were relatively self sufficient. Kitchen gardens were generally planned, planted, and maintained by the woman of the house, as well as the preparation and preservation of the foods that came from the garden. Extensive labor was required throughout the growing season, including weeding and watering the vegetables, fruits, and herbs they grew.
In towns, household gardens tended to be relatively small, while those in the country sometimes covered several acres. The kitchen garden behind the Newbold-White House is an accurate reproduction of the crops the Sanders family may have grown in 1750.
The garden is maintained by Master Gardener group led by Marjorie Rayburn.
The Newbold-White House has its very own Recreation Trail to the Perquimans River which is open year round. The trail is about a mile round-trip, and is flat, wide, and an easy walk. Visitors are encouraged to take time to explore the shoreline, a nearby swamp, and the boaters dock. It is a humble outing, but an interesting one.
The trail starts with views of the historic buildings and ends at the beautiful Perquimans River. A nearby Bald Cypress Swamp adds to the scenery. You may spot deer and other animals that call this land home. Raccoons delight in the mussells found on the banks of the river and you can take in a variety of flora as well.
