Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation

The Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation is a historic plantation along the Altamaha River where enslaved African Americans produced rice beginning the early 1800s. The crop was farmed on the land until 1913. A museum features silver from the family collection and a replica of the Hofwyl-Broadfield plantation. A film shares the plantation’s history before visitors walk to the antebellum home located in Glynn County. Guided tours allow visitors to explore the home and its family heirlooms. The site includes a nature trail along the former rice marsh as well as a picnic area. This site is on the Colonial Birding Trail.
