|Facility:||Goodwood Museum and Gardens|
|Description:||Goodwood is a special place in Leon County. Once a major antebellum cotton plantation, throughout much of its history, it has served as a major social and political center for Florida. It was built as the home of one of Florida's wealthiest citizens, Bryan Croom. After a succession of owners it became the Florida residence of wealthy socialite Fanny Tiers early this century. Florida State Senator William C. Hodges purchased Goodwood in 1925; he often invited political leaders to share in his hospitality. A foundation established in memory of his wife, Margaret E. Wilson, is overseeing the restoration of the house and gardens. Visitors can tour the gardens which contain many vintage and rare plants.|
