This is worth a visit, especially if you are visiting the Raptor Center. It is pricey for the plantation tour, but we enjoyed our visit.

The grounds and buildings are well cared for. There are many animals on site including sheep, pigs, chickens, donkeys and even a Belted Galloway cow!!!

If you go to Latta expecting Gone With the Wind style plantations you will be disappointed. This is one of the smaller plantations of the Piedmont and not nearly as grand as the Tara of the movie. That being said, this is a wonderfully complete...More

We enjoyed the walk through history. It's a lovely plantation. Lots of parking. We wandered around enjoying it. Wish we had taken the tour.

While I'm glad I went....I do think the presentation of the buildings could have been a bit more informative. The house tour was just ok to me. (Although the speaker was entertaining) Nice to visit if you are in the area.

This is an interesting property to visit. You can take a tour of the plantation house (for a few) which provides a really good history of the Latta family and how the place came to be. After the tour we were about to roam around...More
