WE toured the mansion and the grounds. All in all it is a very beautiful place with well kept grounds. All buildings are well maintained as well as the broad landscape. This place would be good for young children,school field trips or weekend excursions.

This plantation wasn't as fancy as I expected, but was rich with history and charm. The docent was excellent and was great at sharing family history & historical significance. Definitely worth the stop!

This is a hidden gem just outside of Memphis with a fascinating history. Please find it and go. Everyone will enjoy the tour and the grounds. Very educational. Most Memphians don't even know about this place.

We were the only visitors while we were there, so the tour was very personalized. Great history of the house and family. Most of the furnishings were from the house or the family, adding to the history. We spent about an hour and a half...More
