My wife and I went here on Juneteenth. We went to learn about the true struggles of imported African Slaves in the Americas. We walked around the property and saw with our own eyes what the living conditions were like for them in that time. Though the land and architecture were gorgeous, there was a heavy atmosphere about the whole place, which is understandable. Lots of educational plaques and learning opportunities.
A beautiful historical place to visit The audio tour is online and great to Listen to as it comes from the perspective of those who lived there.
A beautifully restored example of an Old South plantation. A great place for exploring history with the family. The park rangers are friendly and knowledgeable.
