This was established in 1721 as a working plantation. Through the decades and generations it passed to a Scottish baronet named Sir Harold Mitchell. Evidently well-heeled, he entertained royally, including luminaries such as Charlie Chaplin and Winston Chaplin, to name just two. These renowned visitors participated in a ritual tree planting, which was later commemorated by a wooden tablet relating the type of tree, the planter, and the date.
Visitors may take a tour of the plantation, gardens, and "Great House" by means of a tractor-drawn open wagon, Segway, horseback, or even camelback. We once rode camels in Morocco, and can only say "Try it. You'll like it.".
