Built by Thomas Price around 1818 Oaky Grove has been home to generations of the Price, Blake and Doub families, Originally a two-story hall-parlor-plan house, the dwelling was expanded and remodeled in the late nineteenth century. The 28-acre tract, all that survives of the once over 4500-acre plantation, also contains an early smokehouse, barn, and the family cemetery with stone tombs and a notable stone enclosure wall characteristic of antebellum plantation graveyards in North Carolina. Oaky Grove is still owned by the Doubs family.
