Lansdowne Plantation

Experience the gracious lifestyle of an antebellum plantation home at Lansdowne. There you will meet a family dedicated to preserving its ancestral home built in 1853 on a site first settled by their forebears in 1780. Lansdowne was built by George M. Marshall and his bride, Charlotte Hunt, whose fathers, Levin R. Marshall and David Hunt, were two of the wealthiest and most prominent men in the South.

Over one hundred wooded acres provide a park-like setting for the house, its two dependencies and old family cemetery. Lansdowne remains virtually unchanged, never having been restored, and includes family portraits, original furnishings such as hand-blocked Zuber wallpaper, exquisite rosewood and mahogany furniture by Mallard, Signouret and Belter; Old Paris china, Carrara marble mantels, faux bois woodwork and faux marble baseboards and chandeliers by Cornelius and Baker, a Philadelphia firm which provided gas light fixtures for Buckingham Palace, the Elysée Palace and the Kremlin.

Lansdowne is listed on the national Register of Historic Places and has been featured in numerous publications, including World Book encyclopedia, National Geographic, Gourmet and The Magazine Antiques.

A leisurely tour of the house and grounds could include a short walk through the woods to the cemetary or a visit to the play house, replete with antique doll furniture.
