The trees on this property will amaze you. One is over 600 years old. The furniture in the home is beautiful. The staff is extremely nice. This is a great place to walk and get a snapshot of history and hear the story of a very unique family history.

Great history lesson of the rice plantations along the coastline. Beautiful grounds and an excellent small museum.

This is an interesting historical site. Be sure to read the plaques along side the buildings and pathway for most of the information. There are also audio selections which are great. The tour guide does a decent job but is vague. We didn’t get to view the second floor of the main house, due to COVID, so the tour was very short. The grounds are very nice and the outer buildings offer a glimpse into the working history of the plantation. We would have liked to take the trail to the rice fields however the bugs were thick this morning. Word of advise, be sure to use a repellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of the plantation. You are able to tour the house and surrounding buildings. It's an easy walk from the welcome center to the home.

This place really gives you that old Georgia vibe--the huge moss-covered trees, expansive field, and historic home. The introductory film at the visitor center was well done--the property and family that owned it has an interesting history-- and our guide at the home was wonderful! Well done all around. The property is large, allowing you to get a good walk in, but for those who find the walking difficult, they did have a way for us to drive directly up to the home site-- the house does have a steep staircase to the second level and there is no way to get there other than to climb the stairs.
