Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to make reservations to tour Redcliffe Plantation?

We encourage you to call ahead if you have a group of 10 or more participants.  Often we suggest a morning tour/program that will be tailored specifically to your group’s needs.

Is the Redcliffe Plantation home ADA accessible?

While the grounds are ADA accessible, the historic mansion is not.  If you call ahead we will make every effort to have a park ranger meet with you on the ground floor of the historic mansion to discuss the significance of the site’s history and provide informational materials.

Why was the original entrance closed?

In 2007 we made the decision to prohibit vehicle traffic along the original magnolia allee.  The magnolias lining the allee were planted by Redcliffe’s owner James Henry Hammond in 1860.  After years of root impaction, the magnolias began to deteriorate rapidly.  By removing vehicle traffic, we were able to open the lane as a walking path so that future visitors may have the opportunity to enjoy these majestic trees.

Are weddings allowed at Redcliffe?

Special events are permitted on the grounds of Redcliffe Plantation.  Applications and guidelines, which specify use restrictions, may be obtained from the park manager.  No events are permitted inside the historic mansion or on the grounds immediately adjacent to the historic structures.

Can I take photographs inside the mansion?

Yes, visitors touring the mansion may take photographs as long as they turn off their flash.  Flash, as with any light source, may damage the artifacts inside the home over time.
