We stopped here and were surprised by how much we learned and enjoyed the visit. It was such a pleasant and surprisingly had lots of facts and history that I had never been introduced to before. Definitely recommend.

The Thomas Stone National Historic Site is one of the least visited sites in the National Park Service - that alone should make this site worth a visit, especially if you are a connossieur of national parks. Resting amid peaceful 300+ acres, the former plantation...More

Park Ranger was very interesting and knowledgeable. Only the lower floo is open plus the side building, tobacco barn and a corn crib. One can also visit the buriel area of the family. It's free and worth the visit.

Toured Thomas Stone NHS; appreciated the NPS ranger tour. Overall pretty bland site. Thomas Stone also seemed to play almost no role in the Revolution...not sure why he has a NHS.
