Nestled in the red clay hills of Georgia, this cotton plantation was owned by a single family for more than 140 years. It survived Gen. Sherman's March to the Sea, typhoid fever, emancipation, reconstruction, the cotton boll weevil, the advent of steam power and a transition from farming to forestry. For more information, see the Jarrell Plantation Historic Site website.
