Nestled among the marshes of the Altamaha River, the Hofwl-Broadfield Plantation was home to an estate and a large rice-growing operation in the antebellum era. Today, it's a museum that illuminates the low-country lifestyle of its former inhabitants, the Brailsford family and their slaves. The main house is decorated in period style with 18th- and 19th-century furniture, the family's original silver, and vintage china, while an educational film teaches visitors about the history of the site, which became a dairy farm in the 20th century. A stop along the Colonial Coast Birding Trail, the plantation's grounds are often frequented by herons, ibis, and egrets.
