I know, I know this part is way late, but better than nothing.....right?
So we continued our day by going to Walnut Grove Plantation (another on a whim type moment) and explored. It was great and full of history. We had loads of fun looking at all the old buildings and learning about the history of this place.
Here are some pictures from the Plantation.

Straight ahead you may be able to see the headstones. These were of the family that lived on this Plantation. The other little stones you see on the left and right each mark were a Slave was buried. The stones have no information on them just placed there to mark where they were buried.
