“Humbling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012 via mobile

We didn't take any guided tours just walked the grounds and read the info boards. It was well worth the short stop. This is a gripping glimpse into the majestry and horror of a slave enabled lifestyle.

“Worth a quick stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

We reserved a weekend tour and I don't recommend it. It's a beautiful setting and worth seeing but I don't recommend standing in a stifling hot house with no ventilation listening to a tour guide who shows you three bare rooms. See the slave cabins, walk out on the pier and leave.

“A slice of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Northeast Florida's own slice of history. Went to several performances there of choirs and drumming groups. Very interesting and a reminder of our pleasant and not so pleasant past.
