Grounds were very well taken care of. The Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Our tour guide was Brigette and she was amazing she was able to answer all of our questions. Definitely worth your time if your visiting from out of town.

This plantation was not a cotton one. It was built for breeding horses. Most of the furnishings were sold and they are buying them back as they come on auction or sale. Cant imagine living there when there was no air conditioning.
