The tour of this gem is a personal favorite of my travels. I bring large groups to Natchez and we always begin our tour at Frogmore Plantation & Gin. This gives everybody a clear understanding of exactly what built the empire that Natchez became in the antebellum period. I have always received absolutely nothing but five star reviews on Frogmore... More

We really enjoyed our experience at the Frogmore Plantation. We started our tour with a movie and then Monica led us around the plantation until Rhonda took over. Both tour guides were excellent and very knowledgeable! We enjoyed learning about this history of the plantation and cotton. Highly recommend visiting Frogmore Plantation!

Loved the tour and you could tell our tour guide, Rondua, really loved the plantation! She deserves a pay rise! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Natchez!

Arrived just after a tour started, so joined in with where they were (we then did the 'beginning bit' at the end). It seemed semi-interesting, they were talking about how the plantation worked mechanically and the owners' lives, who was survived by whom etc. However, the tour guides didn't spend any time at all on how the slaves were treated...

The buildings are well maintained and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about this plantation and its owners. It was easy to find. The main house is still lived in, so the tour is more about the outbuildings circa 1800's ish. So there is no grand antebellum house to walk through, but the outbuildings are interesting. I had never seen... More

After we toured homes built by cotton, we visited here. Very clear picture of life long ago. Slave quarters and other buildings still standing. Great film on cotton farming then and now.

Visited this working cotton plantation which has been in operation since the early 1800s. Was fortunate to join up with a riverboat tour conducted by the owner in full period dress. She was extremely knowledgeable, gracious and even took me through some of the buildings that the riverboat tour group did not have time to visit due to time constraints.... More

I'm still not sure how we found out about Frogmore Plantation, but am so glad we did. We drove over from Natchez, detouring from our drive to Clarksdale. We were lucky enough to have Lynette, the owner, give our tour. She is passionate and knowledgeable about the history of this plantation and we really appreciated her insights into the place...

We were quite taken aback by the roll on roll off tour but it works!!! What a wonderful experience and the comparison between the old steam gin and the modern cotton plantation was fascinating. There was so much I did not know about the culture of the Natchez planters and their slavesfrom the antebellum era through freedom and then sharecropping.... More
