Built in 1807, this plantation provides a unique perspective on Southern history. Many modern thoroughbred champions can trace their bloodlines back to this former world-famous breeding farm. Docents dressed in period costumes conduct tours of the Greek-Revival mansion, which was commissioned by John Harding in 1845. Your ticket also includes access to the dairy, horse stable, carriage house, mausoleum, gardens and a log cabin. There’s also a winery, gift shop and restaurant onsite. Tickets: $10-$20; ages 5 and under free.
