Awesome example of Greek revival architecture! Located in a beautiful area of Lagrange with quite a story of how this once 1200 acre plantation came to exist here. Caretakers give a fascinating account of the two families which originally owed the home from civil war history through current day. They even give details of creek Indians ownership before the land... More

Was here about 10 years ago, but it sounds like things haven't changed much. We got into town late, and knew the place closed at 5:00, but figured we'd ride over and take a look from the outside, maybe take a walk. We saw a gentlemen closing up the house. He comes over, talks to us for a few minutes,... More

The history, as shared by the caretakers of the mansion, was fascinating and well-told. The house has been restored and kept beautifully. A must-see when in LaGrange.

This unique pre-civil war house has beautifully detailed carved wood cornices on every window and doorway. The guide tailored her presentation to us (we were short on time) and talked about not only the house but also the history of the times from the Native Americans who were forced from the land, to the original owner and his wife, then...
