  • If you want to know what life was like in the south around the turn of the century or before, this is a great place to get a glimpse into the past.
  • If you just want a beautiful place to look around for a few hours there is no better place. If you want to really experience it you have to check out their museum and informative movie. From there its a short walk down a shaded path through a series of their beautiful Live Oaks. Once you get to the end of the path you can see the house to the left, and several old out buildings in front of you. Near the house there are several trees that rang from 50-800+ years old (or so they say). The tour guides start every hour on the hour and are all great people for the job.
  • I have visited Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation twice, and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The house tour is led by a knowledgeable docent and you get to walk through and see everything, upstairs and down. The house is still decorated with the actual furniture and belongings that were left behind when the last resident of the family passed away in the 70s. There are several outbuildings with various machines and even the owners old car that's still kept on site. The extensive grounds are beautiful and if you enjoy taking pictures, there is a lot to explore and many subjects to capture. In the gift shop there is a small museum and a mini theater where you can watch a short film about the plantation's history before you get started. I recommend it, as it will tell you more about you'll see as you walk around.
  • Definitely worth the admission. The museum is informative - including a video - about the lesser known cash crop "King Rice", responsible for so much plantation-era prosperity. No punches are pulled as the plight of slaves doing this torturous labor is described in detail. The grounds are characterized by the most impressive collection of massive, old (even ancient) live oaks I've seen anywhere, alongside several State of Georgia champion trees of other species. The antebellum complex on premises is well kept with all original/heirloom furniture, and the guide is entertaining and knowledgeable.
  • Very interesting to visit and see what life was like in yesteryear. Interesting to imagine what rice plantation life was like back in the day.
