A perfectly preserved and furnished sporting plantation from a bygone era. All the original furniture and family rememberances. Well worth the $15 fee for a guided tour and short movie. Allow yourself at least 2 hours.

Pebble Hill is a great taste of the old south. The house and grounds are similar to original and the staff is polite and knowledgable.

Definitely worth a visit to see how this extraordinary family lived. Very interesting and beautiful as experienced in a very intimate tour. You can see yourself living there because it is so very real. Wear comfortable shoes; you walk on a short gravel road to enter the main house and be sure to view the film in the Visitors Center...

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. The plantation owners decided to cash... More

This Plantation was really pretty. The tour given to us by Ann Howell was amazing. She was super sweet and attentive. The only thing that made us feel not very welcome was the receptionist on duty (10/28/14 @ 3:15pm). We were taken to a small room where we were supposed to see an 11min movie before our tour started.

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

Then is went on...... More
