Fort Defiance

This is the home of General William Lenoir. According to signage he was a leader in the Revolutionary War handling public affairs. The home was built between 1788-1792 and named for a colonial fort 4 1/2 miles from the home. It has original out buildings and a family cemetery.

The home was closed on the day of my visit. Am hopeful that the State of North Carolina will invest in the property due to its historical significance. The grounds surrounding the property are flat and vast. Much could be done on the property with special events.
