This was a very interesting tour as well as history of the plantation and slaves. The movie Horses Soldier's was filmed here. Life as a slave was much different and slaves were treated like family, and taken care of for life.

Like all of the National Parks, this location includes history, beautiful scenery and a fun educational experience. Check out the main house, farm land and equipment, and the old store. There's a lot to see, a place to picnic and lots of photo opportunities. Take...More

I hate to give a poor review to an NPS site, but this one deserves nothing more. Overall, the site is moderately curated. Each structure could use more context for those on the self-guided tour, which is almost everyone since the THREE rangers can only...More
