Description:

This zoo-like preserve houses dozens of species of animals in their natural habitats. The land and the estate used to be a cotton plantation in the 18th and 19th centuries, owned by the famous McQueen family of Eugenia Price's 1993 novel, "Don Juan McQueen." In the 20th century the old plantation became a hospital, a CDC property, and finally the wildlife preserve it is today. All admissions are $3 per person; the preserve is open from 10 to 3 every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
