While I'm glad I went....I do think the presentation of the buildings could have been a bit more informative. The house tour was just ok to me. (Although the speaker was entertaining) Nice to visit if you are in the area.

This is a real interesting way to share our local history with our houseguest. It is real and you wander around and see history through the memories of the pioneers in North Carolina.

The plantation was smaller than expected, but big on details. The tour guide was informative and articulate on details. She was especially adept at controlling the six small children in our group(ages infant to 6). We did not spend a lot of time on the...More
