The Thomas Bullard House is located in southeastern North Carolina's Sampson County, where the lower piedmont meets the coastal plain. During the nineteenth century, this particular geography encouraged the development of large farms with a variety of cultivated crops in the northern section of the county and the production of highly profitable naval stores from the vast pine forests of the southern section. Thomas Bullard's farm in the west central portion of the county benefited from the advantages ofboth sections ofthe county. Between 1835 and 1873, Thomas Bullard (1812-1878) amassed approximately 1,400 acres- a large amount for Sampson County- around Big Swamp in Little Coharie Township. In 1850, his real estate was valued at $1,250, but by 1860 that figure had jumped exponentially to $6,024.
