Mount Harmon Plantation

Mount Harmon Plantation

The main building itself at this 290-acre site is a three-story, five-bay manor house dates back to 1730. It was decorated with hand painted Chinese wallpaper and period antiques of the British Isles. The site was a successful tobacco plantation, and it contains the northernmost still standing tobacco prize house. There is also a kitchen, boxwood garden, and plenty of nature trails.

We hope you enjoy our work.
