One of the best historical sites on the east coast to visit. While it is small and simple it offers a wonderful view in to the past. You really get a feel for what plantation life may have felt like. A Great learning opportunity. Perfect to bring a small group of children or take a day with the girls or just be with the family. I went twice on a field trip in elementary school and the experience stayed with me so much that I've been several times as an adult with my own children. I highly recommend checking this out!
My grandson was on a school field trip. He enjoyed it a lot. Wish there had been more animals for the students to see up close. The history lessons were great. He enjoyed the games they all played together.
First, I will say that southern hospitality is definitely a real thing felt around here when visiting. All the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very kind but I was most impressed with the woman who took our call to book our reservation and the tour guide Alex. My boyfriend and I just finished with getting a tattoo and were trying to figure out something to do because the weather was not going to be great for the beach and it was already early afternoon and most things zeed to be closing quite early to our surprise. We looked up the times for touring this place but reservations online weren't available so I suggested calling to find out if they still had any tours available. When we called the lady on the phone said that they were already sold out for their last tour of the day that would start at 2pm. However, much to our surprise, she asked if we were close enough to come immediately so she could get us in on the next tour starting at 1pm but it was already 1245p. We then explained that we were from out of town and only here on vacation and we wouldn't be able to get there until close to 2pm. During our conversation with her we mentioned that this was something we wanted to do because we had never seen a plantation before and someone had suggested it to us. She then told us to just come and she would make it work so that we could come do the tour. When we arrived, we went to pay for our tickets which were $15 each plus tax. Alex, the tour guide, did an amazing job and knew so much about the history of this plantation. It was fascinating learning all about this place and seeing the original stuff scattered about throughout the home. Of course, most of it has been restored/replaced due to aging, but there are still quite a lot of original things all around the plantation to take a look at to get an idea of what life was like during that time period. His recollection and description of that time period and how the plantation was run by the family who owned it and what the slaves lives were like was incredibly interesting. Outside, the grounds are beautiful as well with lovely fruit trees and bushes, flowers and herbs as well. There are stables with horses, goats and cats (but they are a bit skiddish) and there is also equipment on display to check out that would have been used on the plantation to harvest the peanuts which was pretty cool to see. This is definitely a place I would recommend stopping at to learn about the history of the plantation and gaining a true appreciation for your freedom and way of life current day.
It was a nice place to visit. The animals are rescued so is nice they treat them with love. If fun to go with your kids or go as adults and take a tour.
We went here for Autumn’s blacksmithing class. What a blast! Make sure you wear clothes you can get dirty or even burn. I made a fire poker and my buddy made a dinner bell. Highly recommend even if you have no interest in blacksmithing.
