Goodwood Museum and Gardens, Tallahassee

4.7
The estate began in the 1830s as a cotton and corn plantation that ultimately encompassed 2,400 acres. The plantation’s agricultural emphasis declined after the Civil War and by the 1880s the remaining 160 acres, home, and garden served as an elegant private residence. In 1911, the house and garden underwent major renovation. The estate’s style and elegance was further enhanced by Goodwood’s owners in the late 1920s. Goodwood is currently restored to this turn-of-the-century Country Estate era, ever mindful of its rich 19th-century history.

  • Absolutely stunning. I adore this place and wish I had had more time here while I was in town. Very well maintained manor home with good old southern charm and beauty. If you are looking for a nice afternoon activity with family I recommend this lovely place.
  • It has an interesting history but cell service for Pokemon Go is a little challenging. Wonderful place to wander and roam. You can't tell on the outside how big it is behind the fences. Love the garden on the old tennis court and the old water tower.
