The Goodwood Museum and Gardens have immaculately maintained grounds which reflect an old plantation style. Large, thriving oaks draped with moss are scattered throughout the property. Attractive inside and out.

An absolute must when in Tallahasse. A beautiful architecture within pretty gardens. The house tour is worth every penny. The ladies are so lovely and know almost everyhing about the history of the place and its inhabitants. Big thumbs up!

We go here mainly for fundraisers in their barn-like conference/reception area. Always a nice time - and beautifully-maintained property.

They were doing a photoshoot of a sorority the day we were there. I would say they are allowed. I don't know if they charge a fee or not.
Is their a fee to enter?
