    BRING A CAMERA! The view is the real treat. U will also get to see the disparity between the life of a slave and a slave owner. don’t expect to get a lot of info from the tour tho, it feels scripted

    It's cute that the people giving the tours are dressed up. The mansion is nice inside but the real treat is the view of the Oak trees leading to the house. You can drive around and see that for free.

    As a local I'm here often. I'm known by a few of the tour guides. Needless to say I love the history. The tour and the grounds. I can never have enough pics of the grounds. Aim for the interesting!

    Don't do an all day tour - it gets repetitive. A ways out of town you ride in a van to get there. Just do one or two of the big plantations and you'll get the history and it will be super cool.

    Oak valley trees are very lovely. Place for very nice pictures. The Tours are packed one after the other, so it feels rushed. it also feels more scripted than the tours at Laura plantation

    Very nice tour with employees dressed in classic attire. Very friendly and genuinely care about the history of the place. Entry is around $20.

    Beautiful grounds to take pictures in and interesting history. The tour guide sounds incredibly scripted - and is not the greatest actor so.... the tour part is a little painful

    Gorgeous and worth the trip! If they didn't talk about slavery before, they certainly do now. In fact, our guide reiterated the fact that this entire place was built on the back of slaves many times.

    Stunning place but wear bug repellant!! Stayed in one of the cottages and we were thrilled but we got bitten to hell by mosquitos when walking around the grounds. Food was exceptional.

    Day 3 of Antebellum South: Touring the historic plantation and its beautiful grounds under the natural wonder of 300-year-old oak trees while learning about the history of this Southern estate.

    Do the tour as it's fascinating. Nice to see them highlight the human cost of the slavery used to build the plantation in the exhibits, rather than just brush it aside.

    This is a sweeping gone with the wind style plantation. Gorgeous trees and grounds. Quarters where they kept slaves and the history.

    Recommend that if you come by car, try to arrive early. Hours between 9am to 10:30am are peaceful, with only a modest number of visitors, often by yourself.

    Believed to be haunted by Louise Roman the daughter of the man who had the home built in the 1830's. She is dressed all in black and can be seen in the master bedroom or the widow's walk.

    Beautiful, but the tour is kind of insulting. No real history unless you are super interested in how to make feather mattresses or run dinner parties. Didn't even say the word slavery.Very sanitized.

    Also interesting on a rainy day, although they need to figure out a way to drain the walkways!

    If the place looks familiar, its where Brad Pitt's character, Louis, starts out in "Interview with a Vampire."
