Should be called poison ivy trail. Terrible. Not for small children or anyone in shorts or low socks.

We are so sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. The trail is unfortunately still very new, only completed in November. So we are still battling plants such as poison ivy. Since your visit, the trail has been weed-whacked twice and poisoned once. But the threat is real, and we apologize for not being able to keep up with it better. Poison ivy is vine native to North America, and it is simply to difficult to completely eradicate it. Even on well established trails at older parks, the ivy threatens to creep in every year. Its something we are working on every month, but in between weed-whacking days the poison ivy grows fast. We will continue to try and improve the trail and we certainly do not take the poison ivy lightly.

An important part of our history that demonstrates what whiskey, greed and racism can breed. The house and grounds are not all authentic but the restorations and reproductions are as close as one could possibly expect. Iriana(sp?) was an awesome interpreter. She had knowledge

Rich, thank you so much for your kind words! We appreciate your visit and we certainly hope to see you for Christmas. We do not have hourly guides for Candlelight Tours, its more free-flowing with a volunteer in every corner of the house to help answer your questions. Thank you!

This is a unique place of Georgia history that is part of the larger history of the Cherokee removal from the US southeast. The house, grounds and furnishing revile what one could find in Charleston, SC or Savannah but yet this house is located in a very rural part of the state.
