Very pretty grounds and a peaceful, shady place to walk and reflect. We had heard that Hurricane Matthew hit the site hard, but it was walkable and very beautiful.

Damage from the hurricane in 2016 has closed the island where the chapel is located and the cross. I believe they said it would be open within the year (can't remember when) The museum is still open and worth your time to visit.
