  • We visited the plantation today with our kiddos and let me tell you it was money well spent! Beverly was our guide and she was so amazing! Very knowledgeable, in character, and interactive with everyone. The second guide was very good also! She went out of her way to come and tell the kids little fun facts. The grounds were well kept and we all loved it! Highly recommend 😊
  • Loved learning about this family and visiting this gorgeous house! Definitely a must see, they have in their possession some pretty amazing artifacts. However, I do agree with previous reviewers comments about this tour skimming over the darker parts of American history, and portraying the times as better than what they really were, specifically for the enslaved. If the tour went more into detail about these crucial aspects it really would be a perfect tour.
