Frogmore is an 1800 acre working cotton plantation about 19 miles west of Natchez, Mississippi (30 minute drive) via U.S. Highway 425 to U.S. highway 84, and then U.S. highway 84 to the plantation.

My wife and I lucked out. After a big group departed by bus, we two had our own guide, a young African American woman--misplaced her name in my papers!--who was terrific and knowledgeable. Not muchof walking to do--the exhibits and buildings are close together--but everything is done with an aim to have authentic items and buildings. The cotton gins were... More

In May, Motormaids from your outlying area hosted an event called "Maids on the Trace." There are over 1200 Motormaids in North America and they are women that have their own motorcycles and get together to have fun and ride. Many friendships are formed as you attend various events in your state or in others. Over 40 people from 9... More

My husband and I were the first people at the plantation that morning. We had the place to ourselves and got a 'private' tour as we were the only ones there that early! ha! The shop/museum was very cool and the grounds were very immersive. Great experience!

If you are staying in Natchez, this planation is just across the Mississippi bridge. You can get the information at the visitor center and it is well worth your time. From the bridge it is approximately a 15/20 minute drive. I probably learned more about southern planters and slave labor in the time we were there then I have out... More

We saw the whole cotton process today and in the past when slaves were here.The owner's wife dressed in costume from the past gave us a most interesting tour through the plantation explaining life in the past and how it has changed.We saw how cotton was produced and the products from different parts of the plant.Well worth a visit.

We found this place by accident and I am so glad we did. This place has great exhibits . A very knowledgeable staff willing to answer any and all questions. A big plus is this is a modern farm too. so you get to see hows it's done today as well as 160 years ago.

Unfortunately it was frequently raining towards the end of the tour which cut down on some of the photos taken. We saw a video of the history of Frogmore Plantation and then visited the smokehouse, wash house, slave quarters, overseers quarters and then the gin mill. Lastly we saw a video of the current cotton planting/harvesting process. It was well... More

An old and a new cotton plantation. The original buildings tell the story of cotton. Beautiful little church, slave quarters, mill, slave quarters and even some cotton still left in the field. Nice for pictures, gift shop. Well worth the stop.

This was the only cotton plantation we got to see on our Louisiana tour and it was very interesting. You get to see 2 videos, at the start and at the end of the tour that show the old and new cotton industry. You then get a guided tour through the old part on foot (the guide was very enthusiastic...
