The Goodwood estate was assembled in the 1830s by Hardy Croom of North Carolina. Plans for a full-time Florida residence were dashed when he, his wife and three children perished in the sinking of their steamship while en route to Florida. Bryan Croom, Hardy's brother, completed the Main House at Goodwood and established it as the centerpiece for his extensive Florida landholdings. After many years as a private residence, the Main House of the 2,400-acre plantation and surrounding heirloom Gardens were opened to the public as a Museum, rental facility and conference center.
