My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the houses and our visit with Susan and Meredith. To actually see something that was built by your ancestors is really quite an emotional experience. The Halls were gracious and spent much time with us sharing historical information. Thanks again, Jim and Pam Rutledge

I am looking forward to visiting the old brick house that my husbands 5th great grandfather built. We will be there in April 2016.

My family would love to visit the plantation sometime. I ran across this site when researching the family tree. John Griffeth was my husband's 8th (?) great grandfather. He married the daughter of the original owner.

So fascinating to see the comments from other descendants of John McElwrath. I am his 7 great grand daughter through his daughter Anne (married John Griffith). I wonder how many there are of us? Love to see the old brick home someday.

In the 1960's my uncle and aunt rented the little brick house (formally the kitchen?) as their first home. I remember spending the night in the loft and thinking considering all the people that has proceeded me there. This spring I hope to tour this lovely plantation.

I look forward to visiting my old family home. I am a direct decendant of John McElrath and found this home in my research for DAR. I am searching for tax records for the property during the American Revolution. If you have any info please share it with me. Looks like you have done a beautiful job on the home and grounds. Happy New Year!!

Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home for us to use for our Fall Picture Day. For the last 3 years, we have been blessed to use your wonderful location to capture long lasting family memories. It is an amazing plantation with so much character. Each year, when booking for sessions for this fun day, It is requested to have them taken at your lovely home, again! Thank you for opening your home to us year after year.

Hi Susan,
I just got on and looked around. I wish I could walk better. I would love to come down and just look. Everything looks so beautiful, almost like a fairy tale!! I told Mary Easter what you said about lunch. She is getting ready to retire soon and I will just take a day and come down to visit sometime in the future, hopefully! It was nice meeting you the other day Susan and hope to see you again. I know I have already said this but Dr. Hall is wonderful.

On September 13, 2011 when we visited there with our church, I was allowed to pull off a dead flower with seeds from the Mexican Sunflower bush. I planted the seeds this spring, and now I have beautiful blooms on my plants. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home, gardens and flowers with others.

Old John was my grandfather, 8 generations back through his son Thomas. I would love to visit and see the old house and grounds.
