  • Had passed the sign many times never stopped. Glad we finally did. You get a nice film then a tour of the main house guided by reenactors. The plantation is small now but in its heyday was huge.....  more »
  • We learned so much on our visit here. Our guide was so sweet, and she was so passionate about the history here. This was actually the first plantation we have ever toured, and I'm glad we chose this.....  more »
  • My cousin was visiting from England and was intrigued by a tourist attraction that was a plantation. I had to agree, the word made me uncomfortable. So we visited and took the tour. I am so pleased we did, the tour guides were wonderful. They gave a great presentation and I am glad this group preserved this living memorial to our past.
  • This place was nice. The grounds were beautiful and the interior was very cool. The tour guide wasn't the best, but overall it was a nice visit. It's free, so they work with donations. If they charged admission, they would be able to afford to do a better presentation to visitors. So don't expect to get the same experience as Monticello or Mt Vernon.
