Friday, October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, 2021: Take an eerie journey back in time at Coastal Georgia’s last surviving rice plantation. On Friday nights this October, Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation State Historic Site will be offering Ghosts and Legends walking tours of the site. We will walk beneath centuries old Live Oak trees, explore the plantation out-buildings and finish with a lantern tour of the plantation house.
As we stroll through Hofwyl-Broadfield’s moss laden trees hear the stories of five generations of plantation owners and the African Americans who worked here, in both slavery and freedom. There will be tales of recent ghostly encounters, plantation folklore and the rich but tragic history of the Lowcountry rice fields.
6:30 p.m. $20 per person. Pre-registration is required, and attendance is limited to 15 persons.
