Drive with us back in time before the turmoil of the War Between the States freed the slaves, before Sherman brought his scorched earth policy to the South. Travel by motor coach past plantations such as Belle Manor, Cotton Hill, The Cedars, the home of Judge Horton of the Scottsboro Boys, and the ruins of Druids’ Grove. We will then travel to Athens and have a tour and a traditional English High Tea, complete with scones, sandwiches, and sweets, at the Pleasant Hill plantation.
Tour guides Rhonda Ford and Jacque Reeves will tell the stories of wealth, poverty, despair, freedom, and perhaps a ghost or two from a bygone era. The first tour, Thursday, June 23, 2011, departs from Huntsville’s Historic Huntsville Depot on Church Street at 10:00 a.m. and returns at 3:00 p.m. Reservations required due to limited seating, $60.00 per person. Call (256) 509-3940 or (256) 527-2488 and see mischiefandmayhem.biz for more information.
