Built in 1825, the historic Dudley Mansion was built by North Carolina’s first elected governor, Edward Bishop Dudley. However, it may be best recognized as the home of railroad investors Sarah and Pembroke Jones, rumored to be the source of the old saying “keeping up with the Joneses”. They were known for the parties they hosted at the home where they entertained prominent people, such as Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt and the Vanderbilts. Sarah Jones is also locally known as the creator of what is now Airlie Gardens.
