A grand old house with an interesting past and incredible Oak trees. Tour the house and explore the slaves quarters. There is also a gift shop and cafe on site

I was expecting more. The tour was seemingly over before we had been in the house for long. I recommend skipping the house tour (which I did not find all that informative) and visiting the beautiful grounds. The house surroundings offer plenty to see and...More
