Th to Su from 10:00 AM to 05:00 PMThis beautiful historic site on the Altamaha River goes back to the 1800s and is an exemplary example of antebellum life and the rice culture along the Georgia coast. A museum features furnishings, china and other items used during the period. Visitors can view a short film about the history of the site before taking a tour of the house. A circular nature trail also allows visitors to see wildlife, birds and the former rice marshes. There is a small gift shop. Visitors are welcome to bring food as there are picnic tables dotted around the property. The plantation is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. The property was left to the State of Georgia in 1973 and is now part of and managed by the Georgia State Parks organization. -Natasha Lawrence
