During it's time, it would have been considered almost a mansion. The man of the house traveled and was gone for months, and his wife and several children lived in the house. Times were hard, but they managed. The place has a lot of history,...More

If you watch Netflix or TV, at some point, you've seen this location before (think tv's "Sleepy Hollow" pilot show). Latta Plantation is an extraordinary place where our history still lives. This is not only a working plantation, but it is the site of war...More

Latte Plantation offers a great place to take the family or just a solo adventure. They offer numerous hiking trails including trails for horseback riding. The main visitor center showcases local “critters” and the guide was very friendly and helpful. There were also inexpensive souvenirs...More

It’s okay because of the fact that there is a possibility for a house tour but only at 11, 13 and 15 hours. Not that much and as we run into about 125 school children at 10,30h we could have our tour at 15,00h. No,...More
