"An interesting plantation"

April 15, 2019 - 

We enjoyed the tour, but felt it was overpriced for the length of the tour. Our docent was very nice but she spoke much too fast and it was difficult to understand all she said. She asked for questions, however every question that was asked she did not have an answer for.

Location, within large industrial plants is somewhat incongruous, and not at all atmospheric or in keeping with the history. And not apparent until you arrive!

"It was fine. A couple of pieces of furniture in the entire house were original. "

March 11, 2019 - 

It’s a bit pricey for what you see...

"Gabrielle gave us a great tour!"

February 5, 2019 - 

I thought the tour was excellent. Gabrielle was an excellent guide. It would have been interesting to hear how large the original property was, since it is surrounded by industrial plants now.
