Dewberry Plantation tours are designed to provide viewers with a complete analysis of the architectural styles used in the construction of the 1854 mansion as well as a comprehensive history of Colonel John Dewberry (1794-1877) and his impact on the settlement of East Texas. Accounts have the original plantation encompassing between 20,000 and 30,000 acres in Smith, Cherokee and Anderson Counties with the main house, named "Myrtle-Vale" by its builder because of the long walkway flanked by majestic crepe myrtles leading to the house, serving as headquarters. Myrtle-Vale is the only original two-story, pre-Civil War house still standing in Smith County.
Adults: $8, Youth (ages 6 - 18): $5, Children (ages 5 and under): Free, Seniors: $8.
