This magnificent estate hosted social and political functions for decades and was originally begun as a cotton and corn plantation that encompassed 2,400 acres. This turn-of-the-century country estate is now situated on 19 beautiful acres and is one of the finest Antebellum plantation houses ever built in the region. The collections and furnishings are all original to the house and visitors are welcome to explore the extensive gardens on site.
The two guides were very informative and laid back. We wanted just a brief description of the history, what each room was, decor, etc. and they were more than happy to do that. The gardens are free (only the house tour costs money) and are unique as they are done in a 1920's style that is not overly manicured. They are still remodeling the other buildings but we were free to walk around. The main house and gardens are complete.
The plantation house is gorgeous, and the original furnishings make it even more authentic and fascinating. The peaceful grounds allow one to step back in time. The cafe on the grounds is quaint with excellent service and good food--try to visit when the cafe is open. The house can only be entered with a tour guide (lots of the furnishings in the house are quite valuable), and my tour guide was both an annoying know-it-all (who really didn't know it all) with a clearly canned speech that she had recited hundreds of times. Except for the bummer tour guide I thoroughly ejoyed my visit.
