Chinqua-Penn Plantation

Record #:
Chinqua-Penn Plantation near Reidsville is one of North Carolina's most popular tourist and visitor attractions. It was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jefferson Penn, who, in their extensive travels around the world, purchased a wide variety of art, including Chinese life-size statues, tapestries, and a Byzantine mosaic. Many of the twenty-seven rooms in the house showcase this art collection. Five greenhouses are used in the care and development of the plantation's gardens. In 1959, Mrs. Penn donated the plantation to the Consolidated University, although she continued to live there until her death in 1965.
