  • The grounds are beautiful! The house is really interesting. We had Beverly as our tour guide. She was very friendly and knows a lot about the history of the plantation. The main focus is the house, but she also told us about residents and slavery. I found it a well rounded story that took a lot in account. After the tour we got to walk around on our own which was great.
  • Nice tour. I like that it's only 45 minutes and then you can self tour as long as you want. The staff was very friendly, helpful and asked us several times if we were enjoying our tour or had questions. They were willing and able to give tons of information during and after the tour. Walk-ups welcome but you may have to compete with the senior tours.
  • Nice plantation to visit. I wish the tour spoke more of the history of the family who owned it but centered on the slavery part more. I wanted history of both. Fun things for the kids to do outside on the grounds.
  • The property is beautiful, very well maintained. The tour was informative, the staff- polite. The only problem was that the souvenir shop closes before the last tour is over, so i recommend getting souvenirs first :-)
  • Jim was a very informative guide. The plantation was interesting.
