This is not a plantation tour in the typical sense as the house itself is the one of last things covered on the tour and is little more than a shell. This tour pays homage to and is a memorial to all the enslaved people...More
My husband and I were fortunate enough to take a tour of this wonderful plantation over the weekend. I read a lot about it before our trip but nothing prepared me for the emotional, powerful and beautiful tour.
This is a true part of our...More
This is one of the best things we’ve done in the states. I have been to 7 plantations in the south and only one other (MacLeod plantation) has focussed on the experiences of the enslaved people.
Whitney focussed exclusively on this group and their experience,...More
It is hard to put into words how powerful this experience is. What a blessing to receive factual information from a guide/historian who is obviously well read and passionate about their work. I highly recommend to those who have interest in learning a foundational piece...More
I visited the plantation yesterday after seeing it on an episode of Housewives of Potomac. My cousin and I came down from VA to visit. Harriet was our tour guide and she was absolutely amazing. She took her time to take us through all of...More

Our visit to the Whitney Plantation exceeded our expectations. Ali was our tour guide and he did an excellent job of explaining the history of the plantation and the history of America colonization providing context and perspective that is missing from the history lessons we...More
I recently visited this place, and was so moved by it. Despite the fact that it was a VERY hot day, we made it through, and I'm glad that I did. I had always known that slavery in the Old South wasn't what was depicted...More

I was not able to go onto the grounds before our exhibit. I was told to stay in the exhibit area. I spend about 30 minutes in the slavery exhibit. I was told that I could stay on the grounds after the tour. You may want to call to confirm.
