“A Real Plantation in Frederick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

We visited twice, last year and year before and both times it was an interesting and educational experience. The house and gardens, as well as outbuildings are open to the public and there are costumed docents who conduct the tours. The price is right, at about $5 or $6 for adults. This is a lovely way to spend a weekend afternoon.

“Grandkids loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

When I first saw the dacility I thought the grandkids (ages 10 and 8) would be bored. But they really enjoyed themselves for about 2 hours.hey were fascinated to see how children lived generations ago. The staff were exceptional. Theuir enthusiasn and interest was a major contributor to the successful visit.
