The King House, built in 1763 by William King, has been selected as a recipient of the 1975 Incentive Grant sponsored by the Historic Preservation Society of North Carolina. The house was given to the Historic Hope Foundation in 1974; they propose to move the King House to Hope Plantation located west of Windsor.
Historic Hope Foundation’s open house opens a door into the past of this house in Windsor. Also opening the door to Bertie’s County Colonial past is King-Bazemore House, moved on site from a few miles away. Described by the author as self-contained, Hope Plantation functioned through its own water powered grist mill, saw mill, blacksmith shop, blacksmith’s and cooper’s shops, and buildings for weaving and spinning. King-Bazemore’s “hall and parlor” design was common in dwellings from this era and its furnishings design is based on William King’s 1778 inventory.
