The San Francisco Plantation is surrounded by factories and refineries. It's almost odd to see such a beautiful and brightly colored home in the middle of it. Checking it was a breeze at their gift shop. Our tour guide, Jonas met us at the house....More
Was a nice place to visit, but not as grand as some of the others nearby. It is sort of just "there" if that makes sense. Nothing around it, but industrial unfortunately. Worth a stop if you have extra time, but wouldn't be my first...More

About an hour just in the house. You can walk around the grounds and see the school house that was brought there that is authentic to the time and era and an existing house where workers would have stayed.
