Very interesting history of Washington Duke and tobacco industry since 1860's. Bill the tour guide was very good at presenting the history, highly recommend a trip. The actual house that the Duke family lived in and some of the work places and tools used at the time are authentic. The tour takes you right into the actual homestead and get to touch and hold the age old antiques of the time. It's a leisurely tour that lasts about 40 minutes. Definitely put this visit on the to do list for Durham. Does it give a neutral view of Mr. Duke... Leave it to your judgement but a worth while trip.
