Frogmore PlantationFrogmore Plantation offers tours: Historical -- Educational -- Agricultural -- Industrial
1800-acre working cotton plantation with gins, and 19 dependency buildings

Guided tours that fully explain the changes of a working cotton plantation from the 1700's through the present, two of the tour guides are the owners of Frogmore Plantation, George and Lynette Tanner. Dressed in full costume to guide tours, with their staff, they teach about slave culture and the plantation system in America, based on former slave narratives and extensive archives.  

George Tanner personally relates unusual products, cotton techniques, and world facts to group tours, and he is almost always available to answer questions for individuals as well, offering a comprehensive historical tour, and include the agricultural, botanical, and industrial aspects in the tour.  Cotton and cottonseed products, world production and statistics, and unusual cotton facts are included in the modern-day tour.

Displays include tools and antiques in the authentically restored dependency buildings. Several different tours are offered, designed to fit the interests of visitors.  

The plantation also has a modern, computerized 900- bales-per-day cotton gin. Ten months of the year, visitors can pick cotton and weigh it in!
