One of the 4 Antebellum mansions that my wife and I visited and found them unique in their own right. Great personal tours at all these great homes. Would suggest that one buys a discounted multi-mansion tour ticket at the Visitors center.

Visited here from the hop on/hop off bus. Really good guided tour by the grandson of one of the original workers there. His Grandad would have been proud of him. He really knew his history and heritage.
