Instituted in 1958 by the Cincinnati Reds franchise to pay homage to the city’s home baseball team, the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates the greatness achieved by the team players, managers and executives, as well as preserve history and inspire upcoming generations.

Located next to the Great American Ball Park, the museum aims to bring baseball alive through unique exhibitions, displays and memorabilia from the past, present and future.

Historic Latta Plantation

Historic Latta Plantation is a circa 1800 cotton plantation and living history farm located within the Latta Nature Preserve in Huntersville, NC. Tours of the Latta home are guided, and tours of the grounds are self guided.

Historic Latta Plantation is a 52 acre living history site nestled in the midst of the 1,343 acre Latta Plantation Nature Preserve. Mountain Island Lake (formed by the Catawba River) surrounds the site to the north, south, and west. In addition to the plantation home, eleven outbuildings offer visitors a glimpse of life in North Carolina from 1800 to 1865. Over the years, this house has been a home to many people. The Latta family lived here from 1800 to the late 1830s. In 1853, the Sample family purchased the home and lived there until 1922, renaming the plantation ‘Riverside’ because of its proximity to the Catawba River. The site is now used as an educational and entertainment purposes featuring farm animals, guided house tours, school programs, workshops, camps, re-enactments, and special events.

James Latta was a Scots-irish immigrant who came to the United States in 1785. Before settling in North Carolina, he was a traveling merchant, going up and down the Great Wagon Road from Philadelphia to this region of the Carolinas. He made a nice living as a merchant and started buying land, then built his house on the land in 1800.
