The 1880's style

The main street still has a flavor of 100 years ago, and no McDonalds.

Melrose Plantation

It is a complex that once was a large estate and now shrunk, like all cotton barrons of the time. The difference is this was a black owned estate since early 1800's. Marie Therese had 14children, some of them black. When they were freed, land grants gave them rights to this land.

Oakland Plantation

This is a State owned and controlled fram presenting the old style method of hard work
