The Pebble Hill Plantation site was acquired in the middle 1850s and comprises 3,000 acres, initially run as a farming unit. In the 1870s, the rich from the Northern states discovered the ideal weather of the region for winter vacations, and Thomasville responded by building hotels and a rail line to facilitate its access.

Hilly rollong grass and big mature trees lend a soothing atmosphere to this site. Brick buildings blend well with the landcape. House is exquisite. First time that I have seen a covered enclosed loggia in a home. Lots of house and dog paintings and family photos of descendents of the Ohio Hannahs. Good guides. Nice mini museum, Adequate gift shop.... More

I have visited many historical homes and estates. When I arrived I was not sure I wanted to see another home but would view the grounds first. I finished walking around the grounds and realized I needed lunch. I left to go eat in town. I thought after lunch I would return and see the home which I did! The... More

The sign said CLOSED for plumbing issues. No where on the web site did it mention this. Nor did a voice message indicate it would be closed. I would like to rate it, but am having trouble giving it zero stars!!

When my wife and I travel, we love to visit historical sights, e.g.: homes, plantations, museums, etc. We had gone to Thomasville, Georgia to see some of these. We really enjoyed the visit to Pebble Hill. It was a quiet Tuesday afternoon so we had the tour and the docent, Alan all to ourselves. What a trip down the lane... More
