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.

My family just completed a long Southern US camping trip and we had Frogmore on our itinerary for a first hand look at a historic cotton plantation. This was the only cotton plantation tour we could find - it was worth it from the history and information aspect. Our guide was another story--she did not want to be bothered with... More

Thanks so much for the complimentary comments about the tour. I regret that you feel you did not have sufficient time to ask all of the questions you wanted. Our guides always try to allow questions at the end of each cabin commentary, but they also must be considerate of others in the group that expect the tour to be... More

Still in operation this authentic Cotton Gin plantation demonstrates how the Gin produced much richness for the southern states. A tour worth seeing but a bit of a drive. Interesting history and artifacts regarding the industry!

Thank you for visiting Frogmore. I am glad you enjoyed the historical steam engine gin. It is believed to be the oldest Munger steam gin in existence. Robert Munger was the man in 1884 that revolutionized the cotton ginning industry, and our gin is patented 1884. Contrasting the old steam gin and the historical methods of operating a plantation with... More

Our group of 5 seniors recently completed a 2-week roadtrip through the Southern States. We included Frogmore Plantation on our itinerary, and arrived early on a Friday afternoon for a tour. The day was very hot and humid, but we had brought along water and all wore hats - per other recommendations on this site! The guide got off on... More
