SITE & DIRECTIONS

The John Lewis Terrell House rests in the heart of historic Rolesville, NC (northeast Wake County), on a half-acre site, at 201 N. Main Street.

Today this c.1820-50 Greek Revival home, with mid-20th century additions, remains sited with original antebellum features including detached kitchen, smokehouse, stone-lined well and c.1860 magnolia. Parking is limited, but overflow parking is available one block south at the Main & Young Street crossroads, at 101 N Main St and 105-A W Young St, Rolesville, NC 27571.
