|Facility:||Pebble Hill Plantation|
|Description:||Pebble Hill Plantation was originally a cotton plantation created in the early 1800's by Thomas Jefferson Johnson. After the Civil War, Howard Melville Hanna from Cleveland, Ohio purchased the property. He and his family enjoyed Pebble Hill as a winter home and hunting lodge. All of the buildings currently standing were built by the Hanna family after 1900. The Hanna granddaughter, Elisabeth (Pansy) Ireland Poe, willed that Pebble Hill be opened to the public after her death. The museum today is a wonderful example of a 20th Century shooting plantation.
Gracious and vital with the South's rich traditions, Pebble Hill is a home rich in both art and history. Wander the grounds where pines and magnolias throw long shadows across lush green lawns and gardens. A stroll through the extensive and beautiful grounds always leads to the stable complex, where their intriguing serpentine walls showcase a collection of antique carriages. The overall impression one receives from this remarkable plantation is more felt than defined.
