For the next few days on this blog, I will be taking you on a tour of Goodwood, an elaborate antebellum plantation located within the city of Tallahassee. Here is a picture of the front of the main house. Assembly of this estate was begun by Hardy Croom around 1830, and the main house was later completed by his brother Bryan Croom after Hardy was killed along with his family when their steamship sank on the way to Florida. There have been several owners of this property through the years. In 1912, it was remodelled and used as a quail hunting plantation and winter retreat. The plantation has since been restored to look as it did during the early 20th century. Unfortunately the day I visited, it was too late for me to take a tour of the inside of the house, so I might have to go back for that at a later date.
