Restoration at its finest.

28 Apr

In 1859, someone took hammer to nail and built a white house of great stature. I can only imagine how life might have been on this plantation home in Bolivar County, Mississippi. When the Civil War tore through the south, many homes were left abandoned. In 2010 this home was restored. Can you imagine bringing this house back to life—mercy. The results are beautiful.
