“We greatly enjoyed the Christmas night-time visit to the Hofwyl Plantation. Candelite walk to the main house, great hosts giving info on the antebellum residents, a Civil War musket and cannon-firing re-enactment, hot cider and cookies….thoroughly delightful! We are returning for a daytime visit December 30 with our grandchildren.” Ray441018 Ottawa, Canada

Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation Celebrates the Holidays for the 36th Year!!!

Over 100 volunteers have coordinated holiday festivities at the Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation State Historic set for Friday, December 2nd and Saturday, December 3rd from 6 to 9 pm. Admission to the event will be Adults-$10, Youth (6-17)-$5, Children (5&under)-Free.

The 3rd Annual Ophelia’s Classic Car Challenge will be held Saturday, Dec 3rd from 9am to 2pm. Anyone can enter a car in the Challenge for $20. Awards will be presented. General admission will be the regular park fees.

The Park will be closed after the Car Show Saturday and will re-open for the Christmas event at 6pm.

Young and old alike will be carried back in history to enjoy the lights, magic and warmth of this antebellum plantation home. Walking through century old oaks, visitors will experience an old fashioned holiday with candlelight, torches, wassail and lively holiday music.

Members of the Glynn County Garden Club Council decorated this historic home with candles, real greenery and handmade holiday creations. Costumed interpreters will share stories of the past. Santa Claus will also be on hand to greet visitors. Hot Wassail and cookies will get you in the Christmas Spirit!

The 26th Georgia Infantry and other units will re-enact a muster of the Glynn Guards and Brunswick Rifles militia units prior to the start of the Civil war.   Cannons will also give visitors a rare opportunity to see the cannon firings at night, which can shoot flames over 100 feet from its barrels. Awesome!!!

Gates will be open from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m for the Christmas Candlelight Program. Admission fees are made at the visitor’s center before walking to the house. Browse the store while you are there. Purchases help support the plantation! Guests walk at their own pace and should plan on spending up to two hours at the historic site. Alternate transportation will be available for those who are physically challenged.  Visitors are encouraged to bring flashlights and dress appropriately for the season. Think about making a donation to the Friends of Hofwyl group in several of the donation boxes – they support Hofwyl in MANY ways all year.

You also will have the opportunity to JOIN the Friends of Hofwyl’s local volunteer group! You can support us (and Hofwyl) just by joining the group. And, if you like,  come join in our volunteering adventures on the plantation! Or you can join us now by downloading our membership form, print it and mail it to us – that easy!
