There are a number of buildings on site, including an old farm house, a country store, and a sawmill. Groups and special tours are welcome.

Quilts from North Carolina, duck decoys and pottery pieces are all part of the collection at the museum. Open by appointment throughout the year, St. James Place Museum is also available for tours.
