I visited the plantation because my friends wanted to visit, for my part I thought the fee of $20 was excessive for what we saw. We were able to use a coupon from a website and save $2.50 each. You can also get a $2.00 discount if you are a AAA member.
The avenue of live oaks was beautiful and the garden around very nice, but all the show you in the house are 3 rooms. The house is not the original that was on the location, in fact was only build around 1935 and the furniture are a mix of antique and not original of the 1800's as I was expecting. The lady that gave us the tour was dressed up but the dress was old and ill fitting.
There are a set of about 7 slaves houses outside the main house that give you a little history of the slavery, abolition, and work on the plantation.
We took a "bus" tour around the plantation. While you have to schedule the house tour this ride is on a first come first serve basis and beside taking you out of the sun was not really that interesting.
To me it was not worth the money.More
