  • Interesting place to visit to see what early life was like in the area. The outbuildings are interesting. I left my husband here while I went off on a loop walk from the house, which is pleasant...

  • This was an interesting stop on our visit through Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. Although the house was closed, it was interesting to see how the farm worked.

  • Great 1.5 mile walk. 0.75 mile walk to tower and 0.75 walk back.. Well worth. Excellent view on top of tower.
  • One of the nicest walks I've taken in a long time. The tower does not have a 360° view. It might 180°, but I certainly prefer the shade camouflaging the 40 foot structure. I'd come back in other seasons too. Played some Flute for the tourists. Were you there? Follow me to find me out on America's Byways, forests, and swamps.
