ATTRACTIONS

Historic plantation tours below are offered to the public year round. Times and fees charged are subject to change. Most homes have extensive grounds which offer great photography and birding opportunities.

Butler Greenwood Plantation
Early plantation remains in the same family which established it in the 1790's. The antebellum home, a raised English cottage with Victorian embellishments added in the 1850's, is filled with priceless antiques, oil portraits, and the area's finest original Victorian formal parlor, its 12-piece rosewood set still in the original upholstery. Surrounding the home are 19th-century gardens and a grove of moss-draped live oaks planted in 1799. House tours daily 9 to 5, Sunday 1 to 5. Admission fee charged.

Catalpa Plantation
William Fort came to Spanish Feliciana in the very early 1800's to establish a thriving sugar and cotton plantation. The strong sense of continuity and reverence for the past is unequaled anywhere, and today it is one of the only two homes in the area open for touring that is still owned and lived in by the descendants of the original family. It is shown, not as a museum, but as a home that is lived, used, and loved. Fine portraits, exceptional antiques, and beautiful old china, porcelain, and silver are original to either Catalpa or Rosedown Plantation (home of the owner's grandmother.)
Enjoy a very personal tour through this gracious home filled with the treasures of five generations.
