Governor Cooper has announced that under Phase 2.5 of his plan to ease COVID-19 restrictions, historic sites may allow greater public access to our visitor centers and historic structures. Therefore, we are excited to announce that Historic Hope will be open for tours on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, September 5, 6 and 7! Tour times are 10, 11:30, 1 and 2:30. Face masks are required. Thank you for visiting our grounds for the past few months! We look forward to seeing you soon.
The Historic Hope Foundation acknowledges the emotional and psychological impact that the recent killings and the daily experience of racism have on African Americans and others in our communities. We express our deepest sympathy to the families and communities of George Floyd (a Fayetteville, North Carolina native) and far too many before him whose needless deaths were the results of unjustified violence. We will continue to embrace our role as a member of Bertie County communities and offer space where people can come together for conversations across racial lines that can help overcome local and nation division.
Turner Bond Sutton, President
