Many miss this little gem, but if you get the chance, you need to check it out. On the Lagoon/Bay and nice place to have a picnic lunch near the water.

This place is almost at sea level. Walking the grounds and gardens are easy. Best time to see the camellia is in Feb when they are in bloom; otherwise, just large green leaf bushes. Also, you have to know when azaleas bloom, else just another...More

Yes, it costs $4 per person for the home tour. There is also an entrance fee for the park which is $4 per car and pay by honor system. The grounds are open all year but on Tuesdays and Wednesdays the house is closed.
