Ever wish you could take a trip back in time? A trip to Rocky Mount will let you imagine yourself as a guest of the Cobb family in 1791. Tours are given in first person to totally immerse the guests in the past. You will get to experience the everyday life of a family on the frontier. You will see what they do, hear what they say, and see the products of their labor.


Rocky Mount was the home of William Cobb, built between 1770-1772, and takes its place in history as the capital of the Southwest Territory between 1790-1792.
