John Blue House

A nice little tour of the house. The guide was dressed for the period and was very informative. Nice antiques.

Lovely grounds and house and historically interesting. I enjoyed the house, my husband liked the old cotton gin and the out buildings. Worth a trip if in the area.

This is run by volunteers from the historical society and they are very, very helpful in relating the history and answering questions....a must for history buffs. Grounds are large and a good place for kids to run around.

Another old place with a good feel about it. Upkept well and they interact with community by staging events. It's a people friendly place and its warm and open for public to enjoy and learn from. Love it there. Kid friendly too. Some historical places can have an air of being pompous, not this place and they don't hover over... More

We planned a visit using the website for North Carolina. Sadly, the info from the site was wrong and it wasn't open during the times stated.....we did enjoy walking over the grounds and seeing the outside of the home. The grounds were well kept. We plan on making another trip one day for their festival that is help there.

While visiting our granddaughter we became bored when she was working and went looking for something interesting. The John Blue house turned up. We drove over there and found a distant relative who volunteered tour. What a pleasure he was! He knew the ins and outs of the place and some interesting stories to tell. He gave us an entire...

My family and I stopped at the John Blue House on the way back from the beach. What a lovely surprise and great way to break up the trip. My 7 and 10 year olds did a bit of eye rolling before the tour but I can safely say they enjoyed the roughly 45 minute tour and our friendly tour... More

We stopped at this lovely historic home on the way back to Charlotte from Myrtle Beach. We had our 3.5 year old with us and we figured he would appreciate a chance to get out and stretch his legs so I hopped on Trip Advisor to see what kind of attractions were in the area. We pulled up and the... More
