In 1859 there were many slaves working on the plantation and after the civil war was over, many former slaves still worked in the fields for a daily wage. From the 1800s to the late 1940s the plantation was owned by the Kessler Brothers. Then had a plantation store where most of the workers got credit for whatever they needed.
