The Gov. Charles B. Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site will be decked out with seasonal decor during its family-friendly Halloween event on Oct. 30.

FREMONT — The Gov. Charles B. Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site will host family-friendly Halloween festivities from 1-8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30.

Admission is $5 for guests 5 and up, with children under 5 admitted free.

From 1-5:30 p.m., children and adults can enjoy wagon rides, games, and pumpkin-painting. The cost of pumpkins is not included in the admission price. Pumpkins will be available for purchase while supplies last.

From 6-8 p.m. participants can listen to a spooky story and enjoy a bonfire. Children will receive a bag of candy while supplies last. Participants are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes.

Found off the beaten path 2 miles south of Fremont at 264 Governor Aycock Road, the Gov. Charles B. Aycock Birthplace Historic Site features a mid-19th century farmstead that includes a house, kitchen and outbuildings. Period pieces furnish the house, and an 1893 one-room schoolhouse moved to the site represents the grassroots statewide educational revival Aycock led after his election as North Carolina governor in 1900.

The Gov. Charles B. Aycock Birthplace is part of the Division of State Historic Sites within the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. For more information, call 919-242-5581 or email aycock@ncdcr.gov.
