Read More About this Event

Welcome to Goodwood

Goodwood Museum & Gardens is a wonderful place to visit, for locals and visitors alike! Come by for a tour of our 170 year old Main House or a stroll through our lovely gardens. We're also a great place to host your next event!

The estate began in the 1830s as a cotton and corn plantation that ultimately encompassed 2,400 acres. The plantation’s agricultural emphasis declined after the Civil War and by the 1880s the remaining 160 acres, home, and garden served as an elegant private residence. In 1911, the house and garden underwent major renovation. The estate’s style and elegance was further enhanced by Goodwood’s owners in the late 1920s. Goodwood is currently restored to this turn-of-the-century Country Estate era, ever mindful of its rich 19th-century history.

Goodwood Museum is located at
1600 Miccosukee Rd Tallahassee, FL 32308

The Goodwood Wedding Walk

Were you married at Goodwood? Are you planning your special day here now? In honor of the brides and grooms who have chosen to make Goodwood part of their wedding day, we are creating the Goodwood Wedding Walk, a beautiful garden path of commemorative bricks that leads to Jubilee Cottage.

For $100, you may purchase a brick inscribed with the names of the married couple and their wedding date. We hope to begin construction as early as January 2016. Click here to visit our Goodwood Wedding Walk page to purchase a brick or for more information.

Seasons of Goodwood

We are pleased to announce the publication of Walli Beall’s The Seasons of Goodwood. This book follows the historic plantation from its establishment in the mid-19th century, across the lives of five fascinatingly different owners, to the Goodwood Museum & Gardens we know and love today.

The Seasons of Goodwood is available for purchase for $20 (tax included). To get your copy today, please stop by the Goodwood Visitors Center or contact JoAnn Bixler, Director of Rentals and Special Events (jabixler@goodwoodmuseum.org or 850.877.4202 x228).

See What Others Are Saying About Goodwood

Walk around Goodwood Museum and Gardens and you’ll get a sense of Old Florida charm and splendor. Once the centerpiece of a 2,400-acre plantation, the main house has been restored. All furnishings are original to the house, and the plants and flowers outside also are “heirloom” – none are used that appeared after 1929. With majestic oaks, sprawling lawns and a breezy front porch, it remains a popular place for antique shows, lectures, demonstrations, holiday events and live music.
