My wife and I stopped and walked around the grounds at the Goodwood Museum and Gardens last week. It's a great place for doing some photography. The grounds are extensive but grounds maintenance is rudimentary by design. The effort is to represent the style of the times some 100 years or so ago. There are many great settings to make... More

House and furnishings are the original; great discipline in keeping it authentic. A slice of time and culture. Quite an amazing estate. Grounds need some work. New restroom facility.

THE place to visit while in Tallahassee. This Georgian style house was made to look like the plantation people envision. It was remodeled in the early 1900s when electricity and additional plumbing was added to make it a southern retreat for rich northerners - and made to resemble a thriving plantation with many structures on site. What makes it unique... More

Beautiful gardens & pool with portica's surround this beautiful old house built in or around 1835. There are several other smaller homes on the plantation which were used & needed in the 1800's....such as the Laundry, water tower, Girls cottage where the servant girls slept. Lots of history here.....and the house is grand....Very large rooms with period furniture belonging to... More

Our guide said it was open, but the house is closed. We picked on the window and did not seem very spectacular. We have seen so many antebellum homes in this trip it was no big deal. The gardens are not much either.
