    From 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., visitors can enjoy a self-guided tour of the historic inn, including many of the overnight rooms in the home and the 4.5 acres of gardens.

    Summer cocktails will be available for purchase, and since this year's tour will be on Father’s Day, craft beers from NoDa Brewing and Birdsong Brewing will also be available for purchase, along with bourbons.

    In addition, there will be a variety of outdoor games, including Giant Connect 4, Giant Jenga and Cornhole, and the Carolina Raptor Center will be onsite with a few of their feathered friends from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
