After having visited the Mansions in Newport, RI my husband and I decided to book this tour and see what a southern mansion was like. Much different!! The owners of this home open it up to the public Mon-Fri and offer a wonderful history lesson. You get to see the first floor only (as the second is the private living quarters of the owners). Afterward, there is much southern hospitality as you are invited to stay for "tea" and snacks. We really enjoyed learning about the history of the mansion (which once was a plantation) and some of the surrounding area. Definitely, worth the visit.
