This is a great tour with history of a cotton gin that is still functional, though it only operates a few times a year. You will want to take one of the guided tours offered at 10 am and 2pm.

My mom used to tell me how hard it was to pick cotton. I'm sure most things were hard back then. The lady was educational and the tour was great.
