Remnants of a pre-civil war era mansion built by a cotton plantation mogul who owned about 21000 acres of land in Mississippi and Louisiana. Currently, only some pillars holding the outer facade of the erstwhile mansion remain standing. The exposure to the elements ensures a...More
The road up to the ruins is pretty. The ruins are so awesome. Full of history, and just so amazing to look at. I love that they fenced it off to preserve it. It’s also unstable ground. This is a must do
