A nice little tour of the house. The guide was dressed for the period and was very informative. Nice antiques.

Lovely grounds and house and historically interesting. I enjoyed the house, my husband liked the old cotton gin and the out buildings. Worth a trip if in the area.

This is run by volunteers from the historical society and they are very, very helpful in relating the history and answering questions....a must for history buffs. Grounds are large and a good place for kids to run around.

It is on a donation basis. Our docent referred to school groups taking the tour so I feel certain they do private group tours. A phone call to them would answer your questions.
