Really interesting photo tour.

Can you imagine how hot that jail must have gotten during the summer?

I kind of wish that more plantation tours were like this.

Too often, it seems like they come across a little too idlyic and quaint relative the atrocities that kept them in business.

Not sure you want visitors to leave a plantation romanticizing the place.
