My husband and I loved visiting here and were lucky enough to be the only ones on the house tour. We sure put the docent through his paces, and he passed with flying colors. It was interesting to compare this house with our historic home of the same vintage up North. In the exhibits area we found the information on... More

This is a very interesting place with a guide that walks you through the place at your own pace, coupled with explaining each area and answering questions. Loved it.

Once the tour was over we explored the grounds, and checked out some of the different buildings and grounds. There were some animals to see as well. I... More

We enjoyed the tour of the house, seeing the outhouses and especially the slave quarters. This place does not shy away from the hard truths of the times. I particularly liked the video in the center, it helped me to understand what life was like for the people of the area. We visited on a day they had war re-enactors... More

This plantation is small and easy to navigate on a beautiful spring afternoon. I enjoyed the guided tour of the mansion and the grounds. The outbuildings are mostly original and the history of them is interesting. Several animals are residents there and make the farm more realistic. Good way to spend a lazy day. The museum and the history of... More

Small but very nice way to spend an afternoon. Several well preserved outbuildings and home of the original owner. Stocked with several types of animals, great fun for children of all ages. Very well informed tour guide for the owner's home.

Historic Latta Plantation is a piece of history, farm and museum. The home and plantation date back to 1800. A guided tour of the home is offered and then you are able to walk the grounds yourself. Thirteen buildings are located on the grounds as well as some livestock that bring you back to the times that the plantation was... More
