Although it's gone through a lot of changes in its lifetime, it's an interesting glimpse into life well before the Civil War. Even rumored to be haunted. Pay the fee for the tour and help support the non-profit org that's renovating the place.

The Perry Plantation is a super interesting tour of an old plantation. The tour guide was superb in detailing what it was like when it was being lived in. She created a story that kept me entertained. Also the gift shop is very nice.
