Great Place

This is a fabulous place for a multiple array of events. It must have been quite lovely to have lived there as a resident back in the day.

Goodwood is nestled so well in Tallahasse that it may go unnoticed. It is wlorth a visit to get a feel for an upscale lifestye in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in Tallahassee. The grounds offer several out buildings that are interesting; e. g., the water towewr. The main building is large and filled with otems from all the families... More

Beautifully restored with an incredible amount of original pieces and well kept grounds. So much to see the 12$ admission is totally worth it. Great way to see Tallahassee history

Lovely antique rose varieties, interesting house, good special programs that reenact lost skills like weaving. Worth a visit. The Friends group sells starts of the pass-along plants and old roses every year--good if you can snag a parking place when they have these sales.

This house museum was more interesting than I thought it would be. You can enter and walk the grounds for free, but you should take the tour of the house. It takes about an hour and is steeped with history and antiques. Very educational. It costs about $10-$12 dollars depending on your age. The "gardens" don't look like much but... More

Very detailed tour full of facts. We learned so much about the history of the premises. We really enjoyed seeing the furnishings and hearing about the lives of the people who lived there.

Step back in time and see how Florida and North Florida was originally settled under the US flag. This is such a great spot and if you are lucky, you can and will attend one of the many functions held at their facilities. Go if you get the chance...!!!

Wow, what a beautiful find right in the heard of the city! We stopped by shortly after they opened and found ourselves to be nearly the only visitors. We didn't take a tour of the house, though one is offered. The house is a beautiful old home from the exterior and, given more time, definitely would have liked to tour... More

The tour starts with the introduction of the families who have lived there. Each contributed to the interior designs and the furnishing that are on display. There is a large collection of interesting objects from all the periods of the house's history. The tour includes the house and all the furnishings. After the tour, you are invited to visit the...

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