Moorefields was built in 1785 as a summer home by Alfred Moore,
a Revolutionary military leader, founder of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and prominent jurist who ultimately served as the second and last North Carolinian on the United States Supreme Court. The house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 by Edward Draper-Savage, an artist and UNC French professor.
The 70 acres of woodlands and permanent pasture at Moorefields are currently maintained as a wildlife refuge. Owned by the Moorefields Foundation, a tax-exempt nonprofit, the property is administered by the Friends of Moorefields and is open for scheduled use by groups and individuals.
