With 20 miles of trails Latta is a great place to spend time in nature. On Wednesday evenings and Friday mornings there are ranger led hikes. Some trails are shared with horses but others are horse free. The staff is helpful and provides informative on hikes and other events. If you don't have time to drive an hour or more... More

We happened to visit the Latta Plantation while the Celtic festival was going on. It was interesting as they had clans there, some revolutionary and civil war folks and even someone dressed up as a knight. We were mixing all kinds of time periods. It was nice that we had a few docents in the house and some music and... More

The plantation house is far from impressive. The tour guide is friendly and enthusiastic, but the tour lacked details and wasn't well organized. Every other sentence was a new thought or quip about the house or room. Some of the rooms had tacky fake food and other children's items in place to stand in for real items. I would not... More

The plantation is in the middle of a nature reserve that offers many recreational activities among the thick woods. The plantation its self is small (a handful of buildings) that can quickly be toured but the real richness of the site is the knowledgeable staff who are very helpful and forthcoming in sharing the unique stories and facts of the...

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.
