Trip South

Stopped on a Tuesday and the staff, very friendly, stated that tours started each week on Thursday. They said I was more than welcome to walk the grounds and thru the gardens.

During a weekend visit from my sisters and mom, we decided to visit Latta Plantation. The Plantation is located deep inside a nature preserve. Once you reach the Plantation you pay a small fee of $8.00 per person for a tour of the home and grounds. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative about the Plantation, area and customs... More

Everyone was very helpful and patient with the STEADY stream of visitors on Dec 3. This was an evening trip but I want to go back in daytime to visit the 8+ buildings I could not get to at night. It was wonderful. Ps no photos or touching stuff in the house. Watch the little kids. 😇

Great event, highly recommend. This house is part of my family history. The Sample family owned it for many years. Sample is my maiden name. I am honored to serve on the Board of Directors.

This is an interesting historic site. There are lots of animals and outbuildings. The guide was knowledgeable but the tour was a bit drawn out- 6 rooms and took an hour. There was a very sweet cat that climbed on my lap for some attention which was the highlight.

Just been here and I have to say, it was a very beautiful site to see. Although borne out of a very sad era, it's all in its original state and has a guided tour of the house. Unfortunately because of its age, there is no access to the house for the disabled site seer. The grounds have outbuilding that... More

Wonderful hiking and access to Mtn Lake. The plantation was hosting a homeschool day when we went so everything was self guided. I was disappointed there wasn't information provided to learn about each room or even the basic history of the plantation etc for this self guided option. I'm assuming a tour would be much more thorough. Docents were positioned... More

Visit this plantation for a look into life on a plantation in the 1800s. If you don't know what "sleep tight" and "set the table" really mean, listen to your tour guide. Very informative. You may take photos outside, but not inside the main house.

We watched the movie about the family history and browsed the museum looking at old family heirlooms and reading the family story while waiting for the tour. The tours start on the hour so time your visit accordingly. Once inside the house we were treated to a great tour by a guide who really is devoted to the house and... More

We paid a little more for the Tarheel Tour and it was well worth it. This tour has a max of 10 people, but we only had six. Sour tour guide was excellent, knew a lot about the property and families that had lived there as well as was at ease and joked around with us. This tour included a... More
