Up Around Stovall


Author(s):
Abstract:
Stovall, located in Granville County, is one of the oldest communities in North Carolina and boasts many interesting facts. Located near Stovall is a house with 48 rooms, and possibly one of the largest mansions in North Carolina with the exception of Biltmore. The figurehead of the old frigate, Constitution, was concealed in the house after it had been stolen by a political enemy of Andrew Jackson. Stovall is the final resting place of John Penn, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and the location of the largest holly tree in the world.
