In this section, you will find what local and national publications are saying about The Duke Mansion.
The Duke Mansion is one of Charlotte's most prized properties. The former home of James Buchanan Duke, this elegant Southern structure was built in 1915 and serves as yet another Duke legacy, in the company of Duke University, Duke Energy, and the Duke Endowment. Of course, we're not the only ones to notice how enchanting this former residence is.
Savor the respite of a retreat entrenched in elegant Southern charm, preserved through the ages to pay homage to one of North Carolina’s most lasting legacies.

The Duke Mansion turns 100 this year, which seems like a big deal. But when I first heard that, I realized I didn’t know much of anything about the mansion, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Another incredible observation made while spending a night at the mansion was the level of pride each member of the staff brought to work. It was clear that the high caliber employees place great attention to detail and service – going out of their ways to open doors for guests, providing service with a smile and exceptional facilities are all standard fare.
