  • 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.
  • wonderful scenery
  • No clue it was there glad we found it. Fun day..
