The house is unique in that the family and guests had written extensively on the walls!…

We toured the Hale Homestead at the Christmas season, and it was beautifully lit and musical groups were singing and performing at certain times. It added just the right touch of history and true beauty!

A wonderfully preserved plantation house, with well-balanced historical accounts of the family on panels thrroughout. The best time to visit is in December, when the home is lit by candles, and enhanced by Christmas decorations throughout.

Tour guide had relatives involved with the property for decades. Extensive knowledge of the property, family history and writings on the walls. Talked nonstop to get it all in during the hour.
