A great look at pre-post civil war plantation rice farming in the south. Well worth the visit. Hours of operation can be flacky.
The staff were very welcoming. We enjoyed both the history of the family and of the region through all the changes that have occurred over the last two centuries. The visitor center has an informative introductory film and a good exhibit about how rice was grown on the plantation. The walk to the house is through a beautiful grove of... More
We love visiting each Christmas for the luminary-lit walk to the plantation house, nightime musket and cannon firings (quite a sight to behold!) and house decorations. Some Christmas music, cookies and wassail are all a bonus
Unique in many ways and very interesting. I wouldn't make it the purpose of my trip to the area, but it is well worth your time if you are in the area.

The beautiful Oak trees and the... More

Wouldn't want to spoil your experience so I'll just say this is sooo worth visiting, the fee is one of the least expensive I've found. There is a museum that you will find quite... More
Possibly many people don't know about rice growing as a major part of early Georgia history, but fortunately this plantation has been preserved along with a good display in the visitors' center. You can learn not only the history of this house, but it's possible here to gain a view of part of the agricultural history of the state as... More
The house has much of its original furnishing and offers an authentic view into the past. The history of the plantation is interesting enough, but Ranger Andy makes it come to life. Both knowledgeable and entertaining, he was the perfect tour guide. The gift shop also has one of the best collections of books of slave narratives and Gullah culture... More
