  • This plantation seems to be somewhat overlooked by the crowds touring the river road plantations, at least it was today. We stopped in just before noon and we were the only two on the tour. However, I...  more »

  • Very interesting. I particularly liked that the had a list of the slaves that included when the were freed. Very touching! Loved seeing the old slave quarters and stepping back in time to see their daily life, tools and equipment used, homes they lived in and the quarters the kept. Very well maintained and very friendly staff.
  • Great plantation for visiting almost intact slaves' cabins. The movie 12 years a slave was filmed at this location.
  • My husband and I had an amazibg experience here. We stopped by because we had to evacuate Turks and Caicos on vacation. We ended up driving home to Austin from Florida and decided to stop by. We were so happy we did. Our tour guide Joan is one of the family members and she had great knowledge if the history of the plantation. Not to mention this place is gorgeous. We would love to bring our kids back and maybe one day get to see the Felicity house. Well worth the money and the trip. There is a story to everything in the property. AMAZING
  • Amazing tour with a tour guide who is a direct descendant of the owners after the civil war. So much history in this place! Love that we got to go in the different places/houses around the plantation.
  • Our tour guide did a good job. She was thorough and objective. A good tour. The video on modern sugar manufacturing was left to be desired. You have to view ot to get get what I mean:-). A good visit overall. Several movies and tv series were shot here! Skeleton Key...Underground... Worth a visit
