  • This was a great day trip to a remarkable place. It was educational and enjoyable for the beauty of the house, outbuildings, and grounds​ with towering cypress trees.
  • Great history! Not easy to find though.
  • Beautiful place! Great for bridal and family portraits!
  • Thank you Lisa for educating our group to the realities of life on Somerset Plantation. Your knowledge and delivery are impressive. We appreciate your effort to provide this historical perspective to visitors whose perceptions of the times may be very different. Each of us learned much, we enjoyed touring the mansion and comparing it to the realities of enslaved living....the horrors of which we can only begin to imagine......our conversation continued after the tour. Always a good indication of a successful presentation. Thank you!!! FYI the website you provided http://goo/gl/83xXp9 does not work.
  • It was a great visit to experience a glimpse of how my ancestors lived and survived as slaves. This was a good experience to visit a place of my family history.. I vow to move on towards freedom and exhibit love peace and happiness to all people , race, and creed. I'm a Littlejohn, Jones, Smith and therefore a Spruill descendent.
