Good place to visit if you like history!

We have been here twice, once to tour the area and once for a civil war reenactment. When we toured the area the staff was friendly and helpful. They do a good job for kids too.

While the plantation is not another Tara, it was good look at life in the 1800s. The outbuildings are either original or very good reconstructions. It's hard to imagine how much work it took to merely exist. The house was very interesting and the guide was knowledgeable, humorous and very good about giving us time to ask questions and look...

Our family very much enjoyed this plantation tour - our tour guide Tadaysha (?) was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor for the house tour. We also very much enjoyed watching the summer camp kids run around the grounds whilst renacting a civil war battle - it was fun free entertainment!

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

It is a great place to learn about history. They offer field trip and summer camps. They have great places to walk around and Ginsburg off with a lunch.

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.

I went here with a few family members, we ended up being the only ones on that given tour. Our guide was nice and very informative. Learned some interesting information and facts. 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
