Context/Comments
Perhaps the grandest of the extant antebellum plantation houses of Adams County, where most mansions were built as townhouses or suburban villas for Natchez planters whose plantations were across the Mississippi River in Louisiana. The house gains further significance as the most outstanding frame mansion in the county and as the residence of the Brandon family, original members of the country cotton aristocracy.
