I was completely underwhelmed. The store had a bunch of old relics in it which were interesting to look at. Everything says do not touch. I asked the gentleman who was minding the store if there was a tour. He said “no, just walk around...More

The website made it sound like you can actually walk around and see the village. All you can do is try to drive by and see it from the road. Old sugar mill is overgrown so you really can't see it. Everything is on private...More

To see all the houses for the slaves you have to drive 2 miles from the store. Don't miss the store with all the antic.

We went to see the old sugar cane plantation grounds and we're glad to get to see the old slave quarters and learn that they were being protected. The store and the animals and old farm equipment there was very interesting too.
