Historic Latta Plantation
History buffs in the Charlotte area have a wonderful attraction to visit. The Historic Latta Plantation, located twenty miles north of Charlotte in Huntersville, was a working short-staple cotton plantation in the early 19th century.
The plantation is included in the Latta Plantation Park, that encompasses fifty-seven acres along the shoreline of Mountain Island Lake. James and his wife Jane Knox Latta owned the plantation and lived in the 1800 home located on the grounds.
Be sure to schedule plenty of time, while at this living history museum. Tour the home museum to see the wonderful display of artifacts and stroll through the grounds to view the short-staple cotton grown on-site, the kitchen garden and the honeybee exhibit. Time your visit to watch the open hearth cooking and gold panning demonstrations and have fun meeting the farm animals.
