Winter Weather Closings/Delays
During the winter months, Historic Latta Plantation is at liberty to close or open at a delay due to snowy or icy conditions. Guided House Tours can be cancelled or delayed in such cases. Due to unsafe slippery conditions around spots of the property, self-guided tours around the site, including to see the barns and cabins, will not be permitted. The exhibit hall and informational video will be available for your enjoyment. We apologize for any inconveniences, however, safety of our spectators is priority. Updates on closings will appear at the TOP of this page and on our Facebook page. Please feel free to call with questions at 704-875-2312.
