You can't throw a cigarette without hitting some history. – In Short
The site has replicas of the early factory, curing barn and packhouse used by the Duke family as they built their tobacco fortune. Tour guides show how the tobacco was tied, dried, graded and sifted. If the tobacco tale doesn't interest you, there's always the house, restored to show how this middle-class family lived in the mid-1800s. Take a quick tour through the museum to see an animitronic farmer talk about his job, the old equipment used to make cigarettes and some eerily retro TV ads for Lucky Strikes.

real history – Great place to get the feel of how it used to be. Provides a good introduction into why and how the area developed.
