In the mid-19th century, a wealthy Louisiana sugar planter instructed his architect to build him the grandest home on the Mississippi River. And he did. Spectacular Nottoway Plantation was completed in 1859, and today this stunningly restored antebellum mansion, the largest in the South, welcomes visitors daily from all over the world.
This book tells the stories of Nottoway’s history ̶̶ her origins, her days of glory, and her unlikely survival through the Civil War, a variety of owners, and years of disrepair. But it is also filled with gorgeous full color photos that celebrate her present, as she continues her reign as the crown jewel of southern antebellum homes.
