What did Peter have to say about the Ghosts and Legends of Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation Tour?

“Did the Ghost Tour”
5 of 5 stars Past Review
 
“Honestly I usually find these can be a little cheesy, but this was done in an intelligent and sensitive way. They focused on the history of the old rice plantation in order to provide the context of why there may or may not be ghosts, and talked about sightings over the years. The combination was great, and made it fun for everyone, believer and non believer.” Peter B Lexington, South Carolina

“Lovely Place to Visit.”

5 of 5 stars Past Review
 
“We were fortunate to arrive just before a tour of the plantation farmhouse was due to begin. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the grounds, the family, which had lived in the house and occupied the land for five generations, and the rice growing techniques used. The house contents were amazing in that they were all original to the house, including books, family photos, etc, since the last family member willed the house and land to the Nature Conservancy who then transferred it to the state of Georgia. The house and outbuildings are about a 1/4 mile from the museum entrance. It is easy walking, but if someone is unable to walk that distance, they are permitted to drive and park nearer to the house. The house and outbuildings are not wheelchair accessible, but the grounds and museum could be appreciated. Acres of lovely trees with Spanish moss and views with places to picnic.” Diane C Erieville, New York
