This plantation was built by Col. E.S.C. Robertson between 1856 and 1860 and stands as one of the best-preserved ante-bellum plantation complexes of the era. This fine old Greek revival mansion contains 22 rooms and is still owned by Robertson descendents. Col. and Mrs. Robertson accumulated approximately 90,000 acres here in Central Texas along with many slaves. The stone slave quarters are still intact to the west of the plantation house.
