The plantation house and service buildings appear almost exactly as they did when constructed in 1830 and are still located on 150 acres of the original 900 acres. The Sharp family of 1830 were Jersey settlers, a well-known pioneer group. The Sharp's never had a child live past the age of 3 so the lady of the house, wanting to be with children, educated the slave children and many of the children of the area in the school house. Appearing still much as it did, it is now a bed and breakfast suite. The slave history here is quite interesting. Right before the Civil War in 1858, the slaves of the property murdered their overseer which lead to another murder of the overseer on the neighboring plantation. As fear ran through the Mississippi countryside, the widow Sharpe found herself at the center of one of the most public court cases of her time.
