Richmond Hill, GA

There may not be a more popular filming location in our region than Myrtle Grove. Built in 1849, the historic plantation home has belonged to the Meeks family for four generations and has appeared in numerous films over the last thirty years. With its large white facade and Spanish moss covered oaks, it’s no wonder this perfectly preserved Greek Revival has been featured in such films as Glory, The General’s Daughter, and Birth of a Nation.

In 2019, a whole new dimension of location possibilities was opened up to Myrtle Grove with the filming of The Underground Railroad, a limited series adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s book by the same name. This production created a full scale plantation village with a blacksmith shop, cook house, syrup shed, and cane mill in addition to 10 dwellings, all built to last. The production even installed irrigation for a newly planted cotton field. There’s nothing like it anywhere in Georgia.
