Hayes Library (wide view)

This octagonally shaped room is a reproduction of the early nineteenth century library at Hayes Plantation, located in Edenton in Chowan County. Displayed here is the plantation library’s original collection of books, as well as other furnishings and art works provided to the North Carolina Collection by John Gilliam Wood, the present owner of Hayes. The collection of books includes nearly 2,000 volumes, with imprints dating from the late 1500s to the 1860s.
The Hayes Plantation is in Chowan County; this photograph was taken in the reconstructed library in the North Carolina Collection Gallery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
