  • Lovely tour of this plantation. Well-maintained with a terrific tour guide! They also have cell phone tour, if you want to go it alone. Interesting look back at the past. AAA members get a dollar off the 8 dollar admission, and it’s CASH ONLY.
  • Amy was just darling! Warm, friendly and genuine. She gave us a tour of this lovely home, and laughed along the way with us. She was super welcoming to any and all questions. If I could give this a higher rating that 5 stars I would! The property is beautiful, but she just made it even better. I definitely recommend this trip if you're near the Roswell area.
