The Tallahassee area is home to the largest concentration of original Southern Plantations in the country. There are over 70 of them in our area, and Goodwood Museum & Gardens is without a doubt one of the finest. This gracious antebellum plantation house, built in 1834 in midtown is a sight no resident or visitor of our great city should miss. It's fantastic art collection and fine period furnishings are all original to the estate, and the magnificent gardens, under the majestic oaks are filled with heirloom plants.
Do call ahead (877-4202) to make sure there is a volunteer docent available to guide your tour, just to be safe. If it happens to be a Tuesday through Friday, lucky you! Fanny's Garden Café, located on the grounds, is open for a delicious southern lunch. How does a fried green tomato BLT sound?
