I have always enjoyed Locust Grove, it's very peaceful and the grounds are well kept. The house is undergoing renovations and well worth checking out. I really liked what I saw regarding the work done. It is more welcoming than most historic homes, it conveys a more lived in feel. The staff is very informative and eager to answer any questions you may have, they really seem to love what they do. There are plenty of out building to explore on the grounds. The gardens are very nice, I particularly enjoy the lilacs and the herbs. I love visiting when the have the Reenactors on the grounds (generally in April and October) they add so much to the visit. Your average reenactor can teach you more about the history of that period than most college professors. The gift shop carries alot of items for children, but a good selection of books, and lovely items for the home also.
