  • We went out of our way to go to this historic home but Covid ruined our visit!! The docent was unwilling to wear a mask. She said she couldn't talk thru the mask. I understand how difficult it...

  • The house and plans for the future are a great attraction. The Docents provided an outstanding history of the house and its original furnishing, most of which are very ornate. Tours are 90 minutes.....  more

  • What delightful ladies to lead our tour. Beautiful home and furniture. So much new information about the time period. Wish there were out buildings to explore.
  • I'm from pollocksvile and a direct decendant of former slaves. I go to the website and see all the nice things talked about this plantation even the hardships of the families during the civil war. Which doesn't compare to the brutality my ancestors faced from these people. Also from reading the website they make it seem like these people were nice they were not!!!!! That place has a reputation of being one of the worst plantations in the area. Like slave life wasn't already bad enough.. my great grandma was born in 1896 and she told me stories about that place. It's haunted by some of those slaves. They say you can hear chains rattling around at night. They chained slaves to the wall at night so they slept standing. Also when I was growing up, there was a statue of a boot. The quote was bury me in iron boots so I can stomp around in hell. That was took down. I wonder why. 1864 Jones county was the richest county in NC. It's nothing there but farmland same as today these things they're not gonna tell you. I can only imagine how many atrocities happened there.
  • We visited Foscue Plantation October 22, 2020 and it's only open on Thursdays. The two ladies that gave us the tour are very knowledgeable and interesting. The antiques inside are mostly originals to this antebellum house. The house and contents are in excellent condition. We learned so much and had a very fun tour. We definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in architecture, antiques, and/or history.
  • My husband and I went for a tour at 10:00 am today of the Foscue Plantation. The tour lasted for 2 hours which we thought was much too long. The two ladies that led the tour showed us great hospitality, but we thought they needed a better script to follow in what they were saying. Mostly we learned about every piece of furniture in the house and where it was acquired. We learned who was in every picture, and everything about the person in the picture. We didn't need to know where every piece of furniture was bought or which pieces were original. In the beginning a short summary could have explained that some pieces were original and other pieces were of the time period. We must say that the house is beautifully furnished and well kept. The attic was my favorite place to see. Please know that we were glad we went on the tour, but just suggesting improvements for future groups. Tell more about how the family lived on the plantation and make more of a story out of it.
  • It was a wonderful visit...they were very informative and I loved it.
