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.Put Goodwood Museum and Gardens and other Tallahassee attractions into our Tallahassee travel route website, and watch your holiday take shape.

Goodwood Museum and Gardens reviews
A gem in Tallahassee. A very informative tour by our guide Nancy. Worth the two hours it took to walk through the house. It’s on par with the Newport mansions.

My husband and I stopped here while in Tallahassee and we both agree it was one of the highlights of our trip to Florida! Lewis and Phyllis gave us an incredible tour. They were so knowledgeable and kind, we had a great time and learned so much. Everything is gorgeous and has so much history. This is a must see if you’re in Tallahassee!
Visited the Goodwood Museum and Gardens while I was in Tallahassee. Took the tour and loved it. The gentleman who was the tour guide was fantastic... best tour guide I've ever had for a tour like this. I believe he is a member of the restoration committee and had done a great deal of research on the home and its previous owners. Incredibly interesting.
