Beautiful grounds and authentic house !! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable! As a volunteer he did an outstanding job. The house has authentic furniture from the original owners. This is a plantation worth seeing and spending the day at just walking the grounds !

This is run by the state, and very well done. The tour guide was a park ranger, & very knowledgeable. The grounds are beautiful, with a gorgeous oak alley. Much better than Myrtles Mansion.
