If you want to learn about the culture and history of the southern states, the guided tour for $20/person is highly recommended!

On this one-hour tour you will learn all the details about slavery and history.

This plantation is not that crowded and you have the opportunity to ask questions.

Absolutely recommended, a very nice and educational experience.

One word. Marvelous. The tour was incredible, from learning more about the hardworking slaves to the McLeod family's history, this was awesome.

10/10 Stars in my book. All thanks to my tour guide Paul.

Be prepared to see, imagine and hear stories about the darkest time of American History.
Make sure you take a guided tour of the plantation, it was masterfully explained and narrated by the wonderful Paul. Mc Leod plantation Historic site has been a must-see and a "must-feel" experience thanks to him.

We were told twice that McLeod was one of a few plantations that didn't try to put some sort of spin on the experience of enslaved people or the system - this was indeed true and much appreciated. The only downside is that the guide was arguably a bit mean about this to a foreign tourist who dared to utter the words "Giline with the Wind" - rather than jumping on this person a more kind and gentle approach that was not somewhat of. personal attack would have been preferable. Also, the tour didn't cover anything inside the home. I think going inside with a guide vs "you can if you want to" and some words contrasting the lives of the enslaved with their enslavers would do a lot to help all visitors "get" the disparities and evils of slavery.

The site itself is in a nice setting, but there is not any furniture in the houses or the slave quarters. While the grounds are not as majestic as many of the plantations near New Orleans, this place is very close, and the grounds are nice. However...the tour was like an indoctrination into Orwel's 1984. Having said that, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you do it. It's free, and if you know your history (or want to read some below) it is literally like spending an hour with Baghdad Bob. Not to be missed! Let's get to it now...

The tour focused on the "enslaved" and had very little history of the "enslavers" - by design. Lots of fabricated facts and snide one off remarks about the "enslavers." Look, I realize that slavery was not our brightest moment, but let us keep to HISTORY and not re-write it. FACT: Out of just under 11M slaves from Africa, less than 400K were shipped to what is America. Why do I say "What is America?" Because the vast majority of those were shipped by the British. When the USA became a country, the Constitution specifically stated an end period to this abhorrent practice. BTW, Brazil imported 40% of all slaves. But, but but isn't it BAD what we did? Shouldn't we TALK about it? Yes! But factually! Not through a PRAVDA propaganda lens. When I pointed this out to a person showing us the "Slave Triangle" - showing no slaves going to South America, she replied, "That's because this is OUR history. US history." Well, OK, but it seems like it should be focused on the history of slavery, with us being a part, a very small part until the civil war, in fact. But OK. To those that don't know history it seems like all the enslaved came to the USA. And not Britain, but the U.S.A.

OK, some of the things we heard that make this plantation seem like crazy town (sorry but these are just too good to not mention):
- The enslaved themselves were the most valuable asset the enslavers had. Um, more valuable than the land or the yearly cash flow from the crops. I'm no historian, but if that is true, then why the next point.
- The enslaved were fed one pound of meat per week, along with one pound of rice. The enslaved didn't care if they starved to death, in fact the enslavers made more money - yes, MORE MONEY - because the slaves were insured. Now this is an interesting fact, notwithstanding this attitude would quickly decimate the insurance industry, and that is not how business is run. But OK, did some research and in fact yes, slaves were insured. Mostly high value slaves up North, like a blacksmith slave. According the the NY Times, the largest insurer by far was NY Life, who insured 508 slaves and incurred losses about equal to their policy revenues, about $230K in today's dollars. Hmmm our guide said that each payout was a hundred thousand dollars in today's dollars, and every enslaved (approximately 70) at the McLeod Plantation was insured. It sounds like someone read this NY Times article and just remembered a bunch of numbers.
- Virtually all bricks used in the USA - yes in the entire USA - before, oh, around 1880 or so are bricks built by the enslaved. Who had to dig up the clay from water up to their chest.
- Andrew Johnson, the POTUS who took over after Lincoln was assassinated, forgave all in the Confederacy they went up to Washington DC and signed a document stating they would not revolt against the US government. This was bad because it gave the landowners their land back instead of giving it to the enslaved. Even a cursory reading of history of civil wars will tell you that the way it was handled by the winning US side - the North - resulted in our country becoming one again. Not sure how the giving of land to the enslaved would have worked out legally or practically. Let me check out how things are going in Zimbabwe and Haiti...
- Enslaved dependents lived in the enslaved quarters throughout the 20th century, and in fact in the early 1970's living there they still could not send their kids to school and the only water they had was from a well. Of course, when the well broke nobody wanted to fix it for them so they had to walk to get water across the highway.
- The NYSE - yes, the New York Stock Exchange - got is start to profit off of the enslaved and is a fundamental part of white supremacy. I guess our guide isn't into Nvidia or Microsoft or GE stock.
- Enslavers never freed the enslaved. Never. Well, that is not what they tell you in Mt Vernon or Monticello, where we have been and history is not right out of PRAVDA.

Our tour guide was very animated, like an AI robot, or brainwashed press secretary, or maybe even one of the crazies in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest who really was a neurosurgeon.

Go take the tour, and enjoy the story. You might think about what our country will be like in 5 or 10 years if the kids hearing this story now believe it, instead of learning real history.

We were only able visit one plantation on our visit to Charleston- so glad it was the McLeod Plantation. Paul, our excellent guide, pulled no punches in focusing on the inhumanity of the economy built on slave labor. He was knowledgeable, and very engaging. Kids in our tour seemed as fascinated by the tour as the adults.

We chose to visit McLeod over other plantation houses in the area based on the tours on offer here, and I am glad we picked this one, which went above and beyond in honoring the lives of the enslaved and their descendants. Our tour guide, Tobi, was extremely knowledgable and helped us understand the history of the site, and pay respects. It was emotional in parts because the staff on the tour and in the house really take time to help you explore the realities of the past. The house isn't set up with antique furniture etc. but there is a lot of information at the house about how it was used, and we really learned a lot. My 13 year old commented that she was glad to learn the names of the slaves because it felt like the humanity they were denied was being reclaimed and I think this is what makes this site so important.

This is an absolute must do if you are in the Charleston area. Having grown up in the south, and in a place where we had similar properties, I am keenly aware of how unique and important the purpose behind the messaging at McLeod is. Paul, our interpreter, was absolutely incredible!! He engaged every single person, of every age, on our tour and clearly defined the connection between history and today in a way that was digestible and meaningful. Take the time to do a guided tour. Our family (two adults and a tween) left profoundly changed.

It’s surprising to read some of the negative comments here—specifically for those directed at tours led by Paul. Were you expecting the story of what happened here to be white-washed? If so, run for office in Florida or Texas. These places are terror camps not reminders of the South’s genteel past. Paul knows his stuff and what he had to say was important. This place—like Auschwitz—stands as a model of human depravity and should be experienced as such. Thank you, Paul.

My granddaughter and I visited the McLeod Plantation today, March 19, 2024. Our tour guide, Harriet was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the enslaved and she told the true story. She was able to answer many questions from a large diverse group. Thank you, Harriet for making our experience so enjoyable!
