  • We participated in the Fall Harvest Festival, and it was such a fun time. The grounds were amazing, and the staff there ran the faire with a level of professionalism rarely scene at those types of faires. I would highly recommend visiting the plantation, holding an event there, and especially coming out to the Harvest Faire next fall.
  • The guides were awesome. It is a small place full of history and worth the trip. We had so much fun! My son labeled it as his favor to place.
  • Well run and beautiful grounds!
  • I went to this place in school trip and it was fun
  • Went there for a field trip and it was boring.
