The Oaks Plantation Excursion

When: 
Monday, January 6, 2020 to Wednesday, March 4, 2020
Where: 

Departs from the Welcome Center, near Keepsakes

Ride along with an interpreter and hear about the history of the prominent Alston family that lived here during the colonial and antebellum eras. Visit the location of the plantation house, the Alston family cemetery, grounds of the slave village, and other archeological sites. Along the trail, you will also see the natural beauty of a protected Long Leaf Pine forest.

Due to its remote location transportation is by minibus. Once at the cemetery site, guests will be required to walk a short distance, making this excursion challenging for some visitors with mobility issues. Uneven break walkways are not conducive to walkers or strollers.  

January 6 - March 4: Monday and Wednesday 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. 

Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children, in addition to garden admission. Children age 3 and under are not allowed. All children are required to be secured in their own seat.  Purchase tickets at Keepsakes gift shop at least 10 minutes before tour time. Excursions last approximately 1.3 hours.
