Historic Latta Plantation

The 52 acre plantation offers a very personal glimpse into the life of merchant (James Latta) and his family in rural Mecklenburg County in the early days of our republic. Acknowledged on the National Register of Historic Places, Latta Platation (circa 1800) consists of the original home and smoke house, fields, farm animals, a garden and interpreters in period clothing.

Latta Plantation is located within Mecklenburg County’s 1,290 acre Latta Plantation Nature Preserve, which provides a nature center, hiking opportunities, fishing, horseback riding, Carolina Raptor Center and picnic areas with scenic lake and forest views.
