Goodwood Museum & Gardens, Tallahassee

4.7
#5 of 8 in Museums in Tallahassee
The estate began in the 1830s as a cotton and corn plantation that ultimately encompassed 2,400 acres. The plantation’s agricultural emphasis declined after the Civil War and by the 1880s the remaining 160 acres, home, and garden served as an elegant private residence. In 1911, the house and garden underwent major renovation. The estate’s style and elegance was further enhanced by Goodwood’s owners in the late 1920s. Goodwood is currently restored to this turn-of-the-century Country Estate era, ever mindful of its rich 19th-century history.

    Lovely place to visit and wander the grounds. There's a separate building that's perfect for a retreat, business meeting, or even a reception. Not sure if they do weddings but it would be ideal.  more »

    A very historic old plantation in the middle of Tallahassee. It is a lovely tour. Some months there is a cafe on the grounds. Worth checking out.  more »

    This is truly a historical mansion and grounds. They are still working to improve buildings and the grounds, but step into the past when you drive up to the stables and explore the acreage.

    Love the old plantation feel! It is a beautiful place with great Tallahassee history. I know you can also do events here. That would make an incredible spot!
