Interesting history of a bygone house that is well maintained and so interesting. Guide was professional and anyone finding fault with this property, must understand that history is to be appreciated, never confirmed.

The orientation video was interesting and the tour was good. The guide had a lot of enthusiasm. The house and its story were fascinating. The gardens very pretty. If you are into history of the south and old homes, then this is for you.

The first tour starts around 9 or 9:30 am and the last tour starts about 4:15. However you would want to go early enough to have plenty of time to look around the ground on your own.
