This Greek revival landmark, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, opens it doors to visitor from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily.

The house dates from the plantation days and is enveloped in the history of this part of the country. The owner was available for questions during the tour; he is a mine of information.
