This is a wonderful old farm with many innovative feature for the time. I strongly recommend the guided tour, as it is the only way you can get into the house. It's well worth a stop to linger on the beautiful grounds and soak up...More
We are local and haven't been on the official tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very nice. The history of the state of Georgia is rich in this house and with these people.
My tips: bring bug spray (a good portion of the tour...More

Have ridden by this farm for decades and always wanted to know the history. It was interesting and house and furnishings were the real deal. still lots of work to be done and history to be uncovered, but glad to see it is being preserved.
Gates were open and we drove up just to see the Farm. Hours said open until 3 PM on Dec 28th and it was 1:30 PM. Two young ladies came out of the visitors center and told us it was closed, we had to leave,...More

It was about $12 for an adult there were discounts for seniors and children. They started the tour on the hour and it took about an hour. From the building where you buy the tickets is about 150 yards from the main house... More
It was about $12 for an adult there were discounts for seniors and children. They started the tour on the hour and it took about an hour. From the building where you buy the tickets is about 150 yards from the main house. We walked it but they did have a golf cart that some of the state workers were using. I'm not sure if they would let you use it if you had someone who couldn't walk a long way. There are stairs up to the front door and stairs inside the house. Once the tour of the house is over you are free to walk the grounds and check out the barn and other buildings. There is no restaurant at the historic site but it is just a few miles from Helen, GA that has many restaurants.
