Somerset Place - State Historic Site
An antebellum plantation
PO Box 215
2572 Lake Shore Road
Creswell, NC 27928
Telephone: 252-797-4560
Somerset Place was built in 1831. It is located next to Pettigrew State park, on the shores of Lake Phelps. This plantation was the home of the Josiah Collins family who operated it using the services of over 100 slaves. Because of its isolation, it remained free from destruction during the Civil War. A descendant of one of the slaves, Dorothy Spruill Redford, has written a book about the plantation, "A Somerset Homecoming." Each year descendants of the plantation slaves gather at Somerset Place for a homecoming event, giving them insight into the African-American culture during the antebellum era.
