Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Charlotte, North Carolina’s The Duke Mansion bed-and-breakfast combines Southern charm and modern amenities in a beautiful setting. Built in 1915 and named after its most famous owner, James Buchanan Duke, The Duke Mansion was nearly lost in 1996 before being acquired and subsequently converted into a bed-and-breakfast by The Lynnwood Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the historic site.
