Oakland Plantation reviews
It was interspersed. I wish we had the opportunity to go inside but there were no tours. Found it very interesting seeing all the buildings and their history. Take the time to go thru it.

Good historical representation of southern architecture. Guides were knowledgeable and nice. Got Jr Ranger badges for the kids and had a picnic in the pavillion.
This was a fun and interesting place to visit very enjoyable though I wish we could have explored more of the houses on the property lots of history here and can do a phone tour via your cell phone if you like or can explore on your own via a self guided map.
