Interesting historical site. The story of the Haile family is worth visiting if you are in the area. The house itself, however, is very sparsely furnished, and there are no other outbuildings still standing. The visitors center has a lot of information. 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!

Two adults went here on a Saturday in early January and had a great visit. Took one of the guided tours and the guide was great. It was only the two of us with the guide. The guide took his time and we ended up spending about two hours all together. YMMV as we really enjoy history. The tour consists of the first floor and you self-guide on the second. Unique house.

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.
