Ghosts and Legends of Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation
Take an eerie journey back in time at this former rice plantation. As we stroll through moss-laden Live Oaks, hear the stories of plantation owners and the African-Americans who worked here. There will be tales of recent ghost sightings, plantation folklore and the rich but tragic history of the lowcountry rice fields.
The tour will be approximately one mile in length and last for one and a half hours. It is suggested that visitors wear shoes comfortable for walking. We will walk beneath the centuries old Live Oak trees, explore the plantation out-buildings and finish with a lantern tour of the plantation house. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to make sure you have time to get to the tour. Reservations Requested.
