Absolutely worth the visit. Make sure to call in advance to schedule your tour. The mansion is very well preserved. Angie, the property manager, was really great and shared so much information about the plantation house and it's history of ownership. She even lets you take a picture in the "Beyoné Chair" but make sure you ask her first!
Madewood Mansion is a gorgeous home and should be added to anyone's "must see" list! The house is being restored to it's original state and when it's complete we are already planning a trip back! Several movies have been shot on location here including Beyonce's "Lemonade" music video. We even got to sit in her chair! The home is unique in the fact that it was not built by slave labor. The skill and precision craftsmanship is breathtaking. The attention to details in the flooring, the fireplaces, the hallway and staircase... it's really incredible. Our tour guide, Angie, kept as captivated for an hour as she told us stories about the previous owners and all the work put into the house. She even hosts large groups for dinners and events on the property! The house is currently owned by a famous artist and his paintings are everywhere and can also be purchased. Thank you Angie for a great tour!
