My family and I went here to see our first plantation. It was a small plantation which consisted of a large house and a few other farm buildings. I was hoping to see cotton fields however we did not see any. We explored the grounds, saw the animals but the house was definitely the main attraction. The tour guide was... More

Whilst visiting relatives in NC, they suggested a visit to Latta, because they had been waiting for company to take there. We visited later in the afternoon when the temp. had cooled down. The tour around the house (shown in the picture) was very interesting and gave an insight into how people lived many years ago without all the mod... More

This was an interesting Plantation to visit. Its not as grand as some we have been to. Its more down to earth. Just a two bedroom house. It was very well preserved and maintained. The tour guide was great and very knowledgeable about the site and artifacts. Their website is a little confusing. It looks like they have people walking... More

Many trails to choose from: shade, open, through woods, near water edge, paved or unpaved, Latta is great for outdoor activities all year long!

Perhaps we went during a slow time, but there weren't animals to see except a pig and some turkeys. House tour was fascinating, but tour guide didn't seem too pleased she had to give it at first. Other structures were interesting to see (small and quick to view them). If you are in the area, it doesn't cost much and... More

Latta house gives a slight idea of what living in the south was like in1800s. The 30 min tour is nice. The tour guide/care taker was extremely knowledgeable. Has some sheep on the property that you can pet. Very relaxing and enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. Tour is just long enough so a toddler can handle it.since it is... More

We visited Latta Plantation when they were having a civil war memorial day. They had soldiers in traditional dress, for both sides, and they told us they had camped out the night before. They had their traditional set up for how it would have been for the soldiers camping through the winter months, and were available for questions. The house... More

We enjoyed our visit to Latta Planation. My 4 & 5 year old girls were free and we received a $2 discount for also doing the Carolina Raptor Center. Well worth the $5. The tour was informative and we spent a good amount of time in each room. The kids favorite part were the farm animals. Some animals running free... More

Stopped by for a tour of the house and grounds. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and explained all about the family and the renovation of the house. The out buildings are well maintained and set for the period they represent. There was a small fee to view the house but it was well worth it. If you like history... More

Very interesting, enjoyed it all, mostly self guided except for the main house, staff were very friendly and helpful, it's actually a park with horse riding and hiking trails, fishing, canoeing, and picnicking.
