The Benjamin W. Best House was built in 1850 on a 900-acre plantation. It stayed in the family until the mid-20th century, and in 1997 was threatened by destruction as it stood vacant and the owners wanted more farmland. Thanks to intervention by Preservation North Carolina, the house was purchased by Ossie and Mary Betty Kearney, who moved the house to its current location, 10 miles south. It has since been completely renovated to its original glory, and was listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 2006. The Barn at Nooherooka is a more recent addition to the property.
