Loved the plantation house in its original state with rooms built on, no furnishings but don't let that stop you from coming here--that added to the tour that we could see more of the building process and details of the architecture. Also enjoyed walking on...More

This is an opportunity to see an antebellum plantation house in its original state... the craftsmanship is outstanding! It faces the creek that fed the rice fields, since transportation in the period was primarily by boat. A worth while visit to understand the history of...More

Got a personal tour from the ranger. House for the rice plantation was built around 1730 and then expanded later. The presentation of the house was unique as it was not furnished or decorated (my wife was disappointed with that), but had much of the...More

Tours of the house cost $7.50, but we didn't have time so we just walked around the area. Five to six signs explained some of the history and a small Ranger Station and gift shop housed a friendly staff eager to answer questions. The oak...More

This is the remains of a plantation. It is not a commercial site. The ranger tour is the best way to get information. Our ranger was very knowledgeable and a wealth of information. The history of this place has so many different layers. May we...More

I visited with my two teenage daughters. We had a good time, even though it was hot and buggy. I'm glad we purchased bug spray at the rangers station before going on the nature trail because the mosquitoes were definitely biting. A snake crossed our...More

The grounds are well kept and the house stand impressively in the distance as you make your way down the drive. The house is devoid of furniture and gives you a great view of the framing and construction methods as many of the walls are...More

$7.50 per adult. Call the number listed on their site info to see if they have additional hours. Some on the tour guides like to do more than 1 tour per day!
