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...

I have taken many tours of Frogmore plantation and gins in my life, but having taken a bus load of 55 from Nashville this last week was unbelievable... 100% positive feedback. This never happens... They were moved by the way this place accurately portrays plantation life in the 19th century. They love learning about how king cotton is still affecting... More

We visited Frogmore on our travels from South Carolina to Texas. The website doesn't detail any info in relation to tours, however do not worry as the tour is continuous - if you miss a certain part of the tour, the guides will go back over this again. We were lucky to arrive when a bus party had turned up,... More

Frogmore is a working plantation, and one in which the slave quarters have been preserved. The interpretation of the life of the enslaved people is not something all Southern sites do. Lynette Tanner has done a wealth of research and the tour was very informative and thought-provoking. Be prepared; it is somewhat over-long. Young children will learn something but may... More

What an awesome experience! The tour guide was amazing! She did a wonderful job explaining every aspect of the tour. The tour was based on research of primary source documents which were shared with tour guests. The videos were excellent and informative. Very interesting to see how cotton is harvested and ginned today. I learned how many products ( oils,... More

This was my favorite tour while visiting the Natchez area. In the two hours I spent on the tour, you really develop an understanding of life on the plantation. It is different from a tour of the homes in Natchez as this was and is the plantation from which the income was made off the King, cotton.

The owners have done a superb job of preserving history. Buildings are in wonderful shape and our tour guide was the owner herself, Lynette Tanner. She has done exhaustive research & really knows her history. Her enthusiasm is electric. Her family still grows cotton and modern ginning is explained as well as what went on in the 19th century. There... More

A great overview of the modern day cotton industry is followed by a look back in time to pre and post Civil war times. Very well done.
