Historic Sotterly Plantation, established in the 1700's. Beautiful grounds but with a heavy, dark and sad slavery history. "History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again". Maya Angelou

No tour available but we just followed the map and found our way around. The mansion was closed but the grounds were still great to walk around and check out. Not too busy; the only people were volunteers working in the garden.
