The Newbold-White House

From its location on the Perquimans River, the Newbold-White House tells the story of Abraham and Judith Sanders, a colonial Quaker family. Dating to 1730, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is recognized as the oldest brick house in the state of North Carolina. The house is authentically restored and features enormous fireplaces, pine woodwork and a winding corner stair. Period furnishings help recapture the flavor of early 18th-century life.


Newbold-White House is open for guided tours on Saturdays (May 6 - Oct 28) from 10am - 4pm, or call to schedule a tour at other times with two-week notice.

Self-guided tours of the grounds are always welcome. You may download a guide here.
