Bennett Place is a small state historic site located in the suburbs of North Carolina's Triangle.  The site includes a small visitor's center, the farmhouse and outbuildings of the type used by farmers in the middle of the nineteenth century.  A guided tour includes the house and outbuildings and covers the history of the family up to and after the historic meeting which occurred on the grounds at the end of the Civil War.  There was no special reason that Johnson and Sherman chose this location; it was simply where the outriders of the two armies encountered each other.  Your entire visit would take about 60 minutes.
