Sherwood Forest Plantation was home to John Tyler, 10th President of the United States. The plantation is 25 acres of terraced gardens and serene woodlands. The owners have planted a plethora of flowering plants to attract both birds and butterflies. There are over 80 varieties of centuries-old trees, 29 of which are not indigenous to the United States.
Visitors should park in the guest lot and sign in at the Plantation. There is a fee for the self-guided grounds tour. Informational brochures are available at the main entrance kiosk. The entire grounds are open for exploration, but respect the area; it is private property and the owners have been gracious enough to allow entry.
