History

The plantation was established in the 1820s, when Thomas Jefferson Johnson built the first house. After his death, the plantation was inherited by his daughter, Julia Ann, and her husband, John H. Mitchell. They hired English architect John Wind to design a new mansion. They grew cotton, tobacco and rice.

The plantation was purchased by Thomas Melville Hanna in 1896. It was passed on to his daughter Kate in 1901, who turned it into a hunting estate. After the main house burned down in 1934, architect Abram Garfield designed the new mansion, completed in 1936. After Kate's death, the plantation was inherited by her daughter, Elizabeth "Pansy" Ireland.

Through the Pebble Peach Foundation endowed by Pansy Ireland, the plantation is open to the public.
