This plantation has survived since the pre revolutionary war period. There is no furniture inside, but no matter, it is well worth a visit. The tour is very informational and interesting. This plantation is on the river and the setting is really beautiful, very nice...More
My husband and I love looking at old buildings and their characteristics that make them unique. This house has not been restored but preserved! So the house (pretty much in its entirety) is in its original form. There isn’t furniture, but to see the Georgian...More
I went here summer of 2016 and loved it. The house is preserved, not remodelled, allowing you to feel like you are going through an abandoned property! However, the society is doing an excellent job at preservation - you walk up one staircase (keeping 2...More
What an interesting venue. It is fascinating how this home is still standing after nearly 200 years. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history and the building itself. We found it cool that it is being preserved, rather than restored. Well worth a trip...More
At $32 this is not a cheap outing but I did think it was reasonable value for money. Our guide was knowledgeable and took time to ensure questions were answered although sometimes deeper more reflective consideration would have been helpful rather than a polite, superficial...More

Not really. There is a tiny shop in which it would be hard to turn a wheelchair around. By next summer there will be a brand new large visitor center that presumably will be accessible. We took stairs to go up to the second... More
Not really. There is a tiny shop in which it would be hard to turn a wheelchair around. By next summer there will be a brand new large visitor center that presumably will be accessible. We took stairs to go up to the second floor and down to the basement. You should call to find out whether they can accommodate wheelchairs. You could of course visit the grounds, but we did not do that, so I don't know how much is paved vs. walking on grass.
