Owner was very...
Cara_G, Mar 2021
Owner was very knowledgeable about the family history of the home and furnishings. 10/10 recommend visiting.
Unique house with great tour
Jim_R, Jan 2021
Loved the history of the family, and the beauty of the wood work inside the house. Our guide was fantastic. Not your usual plantation tour. She gave it more of a personal touch since she lives there and part of the family.
Absolutely beautiful!

Learning about your Hometown
Abigail_M, Nov 2020
Looking at all of the books and my brother was very freaked out during the tour. That was very funny to watch. I learned a lot about my hometown during the tour that i did not know about.
Cool house

Beautiful home. Informative tour. Granddaughter likes the convertible high chair and china. Grandson liked the office. We all loved the folk lore. Just a cool house says a Grandchild. Thank you for sharing your home.

A beautiful Victorian Gothic ancestral home with six generations of family history. Step back in time with original lighting fixtures, furniture, china, plus so much more. Highly recommended!
Beautiful Home!

I am so glad that the family has opened their home to share their story and history with us. The lady of the house gave the tour, and was very kind and personable. The plantation, furniture, and history are amazing!
We enjoyed touring this beautiful...
Larry_T, Jan 2018
We enjoyed touring this beautiful, historic, gothic home. Susan met us on the porch to begin the tour. She resides there with her family, who are the 6th generation to own this home. Many interesting antiques in the home, and Susan shares the history of them. It was a beautiful home to see and they have tried to keep it as original as possible. We enjoyed walking the grounds too. It used to be a sugarcane plantation. Susan was a wonderful hostess and tour guide. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to share the family and the homes history.
