Hoffwyl-Broadfield Plantation

US / Georgia
Listed By: Savannah Regional Film Commission
Location ID: #085-10148478
This beautiful plantation represents the history and culture of Georgia’s rice coast. In the early 1800s, using enslaved African-American laborers, William Brailsford of Charleston carved a rice plantation from marshes along the Altamaha River. The plantation owners were part of the genteel low-country society that developed during the antebellum period. A museum features silver from the family collection and a model of Hofwyl-Broadfield during its heyday. A brief film on the plantation’s history is shown before visitors walk a short trail to the antebellum home. A guided tour allows visitors to see the home as Ophelia kept it with family heirlooms, 18th and 19th century furniture and Cantonese china. The site also includes a nature trail that leads back to the Visitor Center along the edge of the marsh where rice once flourished. Click here for additional info.
