  • This was an excellent tour of the mansion. It was an opportunity to see areas with a smaller group, and it didn't feel as rushed as normal tours. The history was interesting! The walk of the town was ...  more »

  • History before roads , electricity, air conditioning, Internet sales. Wealth cannot buy peace that passes understanding. Proven time and again.
  • We visited Lanier Mansion on May 26, 2019. The grounds are beautiful! Our guide pointed out a large leaf magnolia tree. The leaves and blossoms were enormous! This variety doesn’t have waxy leaves as is more common in the south. Blossoms were larger than dinner plates. The home is magnificently preserved with attention to the original architectural details. The period furnishings were beautiful. Special mention goes to our guide, Michael. He was very knowledgeable and hospitable. We weren’t rushed and the tour lasted about 45 minutes.
  • Great place to take pictures! I have taken pictures here all the time for a special occasions, a normal day, or just in general. It’s a nice background for pictures. Down below is a picture from my phone, but imagine with a high definition camera would look even better.
  • Haven't been there for a while. It was very nice. Saw a good friend there that we haven't seen for a while.
  • Our guide, Mike, was wonderful! Very informative
