Excellent for it's size... Very pleased with the curation and presentation and staff. Not the biggest or fanciest, but well done. Definitely worth a visit of about 2 hours.

Sweet, serene rustic home site on 22 wooded, gently rolling hills (of the family's original 150+ acres), just a few miles from bustling Charlotte! The birthplace of James K Polk (the buildings were reconstructed on the family's land, as the original buildings had been long gone.). Nice little museum. No admission charge, but donations welcome.

Good historic site. Video , museum, small gift shop ,tour of very simple historic period buildings . Half hour to 45 min spent here. Great stop during travel, or local visit if you are in the area.

Lots of good information in the museum. The staff was very knowledgeable. The guided tour is nice because you can go in the buildings. The guide provided a lot of extra information. No sidewalks out by the structures, so wear shoes that are ok for grass and some mud. There is a small nature trail available as well
