Fantastic presentation of how cotton production interacted with people of colour in this area of the US. If you have any interest in social history and micro economics you will love this and Lynette Turner is passionate about explaining it all.

Excellent tour about cotton production then and now including the importance of cotton during the civil war.Several original outbuildings from the 1800's. VERY knowledgeable guide. Worth every penny if you are interested in history.

We don’t write many reviews but thought our tour of Frogmore deserved one. Our tour was fascinating and tracked the history of the plantation from slavery to sharecropping through to modern day production. What made the tour exceptional, however, was the extent to which the...More
