Dongola Plantation Manor, Circa 1832. Almost two acres in NC. $109,000

June 14, 2019

I have seen Dongola in person. It is quite imposing! Dongola Plantation Manor was built in 1832. It is located on 1.86 acres in Yanceyville, North Carolina. There weren’t many pictures so I did find some old ones that NC had on file. Those pictures are from the 1930’s. This property is zoned residential/commercial. Yanceyville is a small town near Danville, Virginia. $109,000

From the Preservation North Carolina listing:
