  • We visited Radcliffe Plantation Labor Day weekend and we were VERY impressed with the whole experience. The grounds are open to the public and free to roam and a guided tour can be purchased for just $7.50 a person (children under 5 are free). Our tour guide Jordan was super knowledgeable and had an answer for every question that was asked. I wasn't sure what to expect before we came but we were pleasantly surprised with the whole experience!
  • This hidden property is beautiful. The tour guide, Elizabeth, is knowledgeable and animated which made for an informative and fun experience. The tour lasts a little under an hour and then gives an opportunity to explore additional places on the property at your own pace. We can't wait to go on the "behind the scenes" tour, which includes the attic and basement areas of the main house. I wouldn't recommend taking small children, as you cannot touch items in the house, sit on the furniture, etc.
