Tradition Continues: Midway Plantation Completes Historic Move

Record #:
Midway Plantation in Knightdale was built on a 1739 land grant from Lord Granville, and the property has remained in the Silver family for seven generations. The plantation house sat on what was the old Tarborough Road, which has become a major highway in 2005. Highway I-540 is encroaching nearby. To save their 4,000-square-foot home, the family moved the house and its five outbuildings to a new location. Lea discusses the relocation process.
