Buckland Plantation played an important role in Gates County's early history. Dating from the early 1700s, Buckland Plantation grew to over 3,000 acres and had over 100 slaves working its fields. Following a succession of several owners, Buckland Plantation shrank in size. Today, the Buckland home is in disrepair. Plans are under way to begin restoration
In 1938, Buckland was considered to be the oldest home standing in the state. Believed to have been built as early as 1650, the home stood in Gates County. By the early 20th-century, the home's shell stood but much of the interior was removed and sent to a northern museum.
