One of the most popular trails in this 737-acre, east Charlotte preserve leads to the ruins of the Robinson Rock House, a stone structure historians believe was built between 1780 and 1810. The site, which has been excavated by archeologists from UNC Charlotte, was part of a large plantation in the mid-19th century and then home to a blacksmith and woodworker.
