My 9 year old attends one of the Summer Camps that Latta Plantation offers and he loves it. All little boys like to play pretend so what's better than a camp where you can pretend to be a soldier from the Revolutionary or Civil war. The staff that is in charge of the camps are awesome and you feel transported... More

We have been there several times, for festivals or just to walk through. Have taken visitors from other states ages 3 to 80. Always have had a good time. An opportunity to walk through history. I would encourage every one to watch the short but well done film before walking the plantation. Some of the people that work there or... More

We just happened upon this Historic Plantation. As luck would have it, there was a Folk Life Festival on when we were here. Great music, great food, and wonderful artisans selling their wares. The grounds and buildings are worth visiting. Lots of history here.

This is a true working farm. The house is not a Mansion but is a real farm house. Our guide was very informative and gave us an insight into the life and times of the family that is very interesting (one of the daughters marries, dies and her husband marries another sister). The buildings are some of the best kept... More

We've toured a lot of plantations and grand homes in the South, but I would have to say this was not on the usual scale that we visit. Not much to see. I was disappointed in this facility and we only stayed about 30 minutes.

The Latta Plantation is not what many picture as the sprawling, large southern plantation house. Instead it is a working farm/homestead. It is small enough to easily explore in an hour or two. Do time it for a tour of the inside of the house, although the out buildings are interesting as well.

I visited the Latta Plantation not knowing what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised - the Tour of the house was delivered by a guide who was well informed and very enthusiastic about the family and their history - he conveyed the story of the family and how they lived there, their servants, daily chores and running of the...

Interesting historical place, we very much enjoyed the tour and have stopped back several times for the delicious local honey. I really enjoy the small local faires they do during the year and wish they would have more or even a craft fair.

My husband and I live in Charlotte and we enjoy hiking. We recently purchased a book entitled "Best Hikes Near Charlotte" by Jennifer Pharr Davis. Latta Plantation is listed as one of the places to hike so we decided to check it out. The place is easy to get to and parking is free. There are four trails in 2... More

This is a neat place to go, it is such a beautiful park and the old homestead is really neat. They have special events from time to time, the day we went there there was nothing special going on but we still had a good time! Be sure to visit the raptor center while you're there.
