Historic Latta Plantation is a circa 1800 cotton plantation and living history farm, located within Latta Plantation Nature Preserve. Tours of the Latta home are guided, and tours of the grounds are self-guided.
School groups are on site daily during the school year. When large groups are on site, visitors may be asked to join those groups in lieu of a guided house tour, due to a limited number of staff members available to provide tours. For more information on tour times, please see the Plan Your Visit page of our website.
