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.

Great overview of life on a plantation. Very easy to tour, I recommend the tour of the house. Give yourself a couple of hours to explore the plantation and some extra time to take one of the nature trails. It really exceeded my expectations.

Many planned activities.seems to be a safe place to walk. Stop by the office at the entrance for information

I wish the guy who helped saddle had listened to me to fix the stir-up better, but the girl that took us out was awesome and I would do it again.

We go on a lot of house tours (it's our "thing") but I have to honestly say, the lady who gave the tour gave one of the most interesting and knowledgeable tours w have ever been on! This alone makes it worth the trip. Coming from the Williamsburg area; I wish they all dressed and performed their activities in the... More
