  • A lot of history here, they've preserved it very well. The house tours are well worth the price, very cool getting to see it so well preserved. The rangers are very knowledgeable and friendly!
  • Great place to visit for history buffs. Usually not very crowded, a great deal of information about the area. Beautiful home.
  • This was an excellent tour. The house is very interesting, and the Ranger - Doug, was excellent. Very informative and fun. We enjoyed the entire tour of the home.
  • Loved it. The ranger/tour guide was fun, knowledgeable and very personable. The house and grounds are beautiful.
  • The big house was closed but the office people gave us a wonderful account of the plantation's history. Just reading the manuscripts and documents was fascinating. My ancestors served as indentured servants and became successful after years of mistreatment. I am just glad our family got here and prospered by God's help. You can't change your history but you can change your future.
