I am bias in my review, as any old piece of architecture will receive a 5 star rating. They had a nice amount of parking, the grounds and home were beautiful and the history was exciting to learn (at least for a history major like me!) My 2 year old enjoyed the scenery and didn't get too antsy.

I was so impressed with both the home and the excellent presentation by the live-in Guides. It was clear they were both fascinated by the history surrounding the home. Their presentations were punctuated with additional historical facts, pictures, and artifacts that helped one understand the grand home's place in the history of both Georgia and the United States. The house... More

This is a well maintained antebellum home with amazing woodwork. The tour guides are resident hosts, so they are very knowledgeable. They do not have a website, but the hours are Tuesday - Saturday 10am-1pm & 2pm-5pm, there is a $5 fee.

Awesome example of Greek revival architecture! Located in a beautiful area of Lagrange with quite a story of how this once 1200 acre plantation came to exist here. Caretakers give a fascinating account of the two families which originally owed the home from civil war history through current day. They even give details of creek Indians ownership before the land... More

Was here about 10 years ago, but it sounds like things haven't changed much. We got into town late, and knew the place closed at 5:00, but figured we'd ride over and take a look from the outside, maybe take a walk. We saw a gentlemen closing up the house. He comes over, talks to us for a few minutes,... More
