Town of Kenly

The friendliest town

The citizens and businesses of Kenly welcome you! Widely known around here as Friendly Kenly – they are ready to help if your car breaks down, if you need a break from the road whether you are driving a big rig or car, or you are in the search of a bite to eat. The town has three exits along I-95, Exits 107, 106, 105, and a touch of local farming heritage as well.

The founders of the Tobacco Farm Life Museum believed that travelers along I-95 would enjoy meeting area farmers and learning about their lives. They were right and began giving on-farm tours to hundreds of interested visitors – long before the term agritourism was trendy.  Today, the museum located at Exit 107, has a 6,000 square foot exhibit gallery, the Iredell-Brown homestead, restored tobacco barn, a pack-house, and schoolhouse all showcasing how families lived, worked, farmed, and worshiped in the early 1900s.
