This was a very interesting tour of a beautiful home. Our Guide was great and gave us so much information on this mansion. Everyone should see this beautiful home with the gardens.

Love this home which is run by the National Park Service. Grand rooms, ornate decorations make this a must see for any time of the year. The property is spacious and well worth exploring.

This plantation is run by the National Park Service. Our ranger was very knowledgeable and brought history to life. The grounds are beautiful and well worth the visit. The interior of the home gives a glimpse into what life was like during that era.

This is a nice house to see, however the paid tour only covers the house and the grounds are self guided. You can visit the grounds for free. The tour itself was informative but I would have liked much more information about the slaves side...More

We arrived at an off time and did not want to wait until the next tour. I was disappointed that what looked like a nice gift shop was closed because the person working in it was leading a tour. Wish someone else had been there...More
