“originally a corn & cotton plantation”

Located in Tallahassee; Florida; Goodwood was one of the first properties in the State of Florida to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It began in the early 1830s as a corn and cotton plantation that ultimately encompassed 2;400 acres. In the 1920s the estate underwent major renovations; securing its place among the fine homes of the Country Estate era. Today; the estate totals 16 acres in the heart of Tallahassee and boasts 20 built features dating from ca. 1835 to 1925. Over 95% of the collection of artifacts have remained in the Main House since the middle of the 19th century; passed down from owner to owner. It has some of the oldest; frescoed ceilings remaining in the South. Time and again; we hear that Goodwood is as fine as or finer than house museums in Savannah; Charleston; Natchez and New Orleans. Visitors will also enjoy strolling Goodwood’s historic gardens and their breathtaking heirloom roses and the tens of thousands of daffodils planted in "Bulb" lawns; a very popular way to plant bulbs in the 1800s but rarely seen today.
