Known as “Frew's Folly” for the extravagance of the owner who built it, this plantation house is a beautiful example of the rich gentleman's life of the early 19th Century. Occupied by several rich families and their slaves in succession, the house has many a tale to reveal. Tours of the area promote this heritage and educate folks about the lifestyles of their probable ancestors. Stroll through the beautiful gardens amid the trees, barns and outbuildings, and look at the old wash-house that was once full of suds and chatting women. A myriad of events like tea-parties, fund-raisers and candle-light tours take place here as well.
