Nice day for history and a walk

Ah, pass the sweet tea Miss Scarlett. Take a nice stroll through the grounds but tour the tour house also.

When we walked around the grounds of this historic plantation, I felt like I was at Tara! We didn't tour the house, but if we had more time, that looked quite interesting. There was supposed to be an audio tour of the gardens, but the woman behind the desk at the visitors center didn't mention it. So ask about it!

This is a side of Florida that we have not experienced on our previous trips, which have been to beaches, Disney etc. Goodwood is an Antebellum plantation estate that has been very well restored, and brought to the condition that it was in around in the early part of the 20th century. The furnishings are mostly original items from the... More

Lunch with friends in Fannie's Cafe, then take a Docent guided tour of the lovely house and grounds. Five families lived in this beautiful stately home, and all left items and furniture behind. Built in the early 1800's, this house is a treasure. A 'don't miss' for anyone, but especially tourist interested in the history of Tallahassee. One of Tallahassee's... More

You cannot beat Goodwood Museum and Gardens for an Event Venue. Lots of character and the staff is very helpful. Beautiful place for any party.

The Goodwood house is interesting and beautiful. I loved that much of the furniture is original. The docent was very knowledgeable of the history of the families who owned the house. We had a lovely lunch on the property (fried green tomato BLT). Would highly recommed a visit.

A visit here is like stepping back into the "Gone With the Wind" era. The house museum is magnificent with many original furnishings in the mid-1850s house. The outbuildings are very interesting and the grounds are just what one would expect from the early 1900s. Fabulous! Don't miss this. The cost is very low and the grounds tour is free.

We attended a lovely Christmas Concert in the Barn. What a wonderful setting for a concert! Afterwards, we strolled the grounds and enjoyed the peaceful setting. We also toured the historic mansion. How lovely! There were knowledgeable volunteers in each of the rooms, who were a wealth of information, and told us of the house's history. Well worth a visit!

We came here for the house tour, but loved the grounds. The freesia was in bloom, along with several other flowers. The air smelled divine! There are several out buildings. They include a pool, ice rink, green house, laundry and several guest cottages among others. The tour guide was very nice, and knowledgable. The items in the house are all... More
