Stopped at Bennett Place on the way to visit my cousin. No charge to tour this historic site. Boys enjoyed seeing the old buildings and hearing the history presented by the tour guide. Super friendly staff! Bought an awesome wooden carved Christmas ornament!

The folks that run this site are very friendly and have tremendous knowledge of the Civil War. Even the gentleman that cuts the lawn could be a history teacher! Remember this is closed on Mondays.

i remember there being enough room, but I'd call the site and ask them if it's okay before you actually try to park a big rig on their property.
