Pebble Hill Plantation

Pebble Hill Plantation Review

On the National Register of Historic Places, Pebble Hill is the only plantation in the area open to the public. The property dates to 1825, although most of the original house was destroyed in a fire in the 1930s. Highlights of the current two-story main house include a dramatic horseshoe-shape entryway, a wraparound terrace on the upper floor, and an elegant sunroom decorated with a wildlife motif. Surrounding the house are 34 acres of immaculately maintained grounds that include gardens, a walking path festooned with jasmine, a log-cabin school, a fire station, a carriage house, kennels, and a hospital for the plantation's more than 100 dogs (prized dogs were buried with full funerals, including a minister). The sprawling dairy-and-horse-stable complex resembles an English village.
