This 80-acre site was originally a sugar plantation where you can see the original family mansion, the worker's quarters and many fine gardens.

We took the 10am tour of the house and grounds. Our tour guide was very informative and did his best to answer any and all questions that we might have. The sugar 'cookies' that everyone talks about were not really cookies in my opinion. They...More

Spent quite a bit of time going through this old sugar plantation. Admission is $20 each, with tours on only certain days of the week, so you must make reservations ahead of time. You get a volunteer tour guide who takes you through the various...More

This is a trip back in time, back to nature to see how locals lived in a by gone era. Fun stop off the beaten path. Lush plants and landscaping that is stunning. Houses to tour and history to be learned.

The Grove Farm Museum flies under the radar. It is tremendously interesting. The Plantation House is incredible with unbelievable artifacts. The Plantation was inhabited by the Wilcox family since the mid-1850's before being turned into a museum. Its a time capsule of sugar plantation life....More
