There's Dockery Plantation about ten minutes east of Cleveland, Mississippi down Highway 8. It's a nifty place to visit (and free), if you have time. It has several buildings there from the now-abandoned plantation and a marker explaining the significance of the place. The ruins of the old store and the old cotton-processing machinery left in one of the buildings are also fun to explore.
