This is the smallest plantation house I visited, intimate and "lived in." Its main claim to fame is that naturalist John James Audubon was employed here as a tutor and painted 32 of his famous bird paintings before being fired for padding his hours.

Some trails are well maintained, others more primitive (and the difference is well marked on the maps). From Highway 61, take a left on Miss....more
