Publishers Description: In the mid-19th century, a wealthy southern Louisiana sugar planter named John Hampden Randolph instructed his architect to build him the grandest home on the Mississippi River. And he did. After years of planning and construction, Nottoway Plantation was completed in 1859 to stand as a spectacular testament not only to Randolphs wealth, but also to his fascination with innovative technology. However, the fact that Nottoway is still standing today, having survived the Civil War, a variety of owners, and years of decline and disrepair, is perhaps the most remarkable thing of all. And it is only because of the perseverance, courage and vision of a few special people throughout her history that she still exists today. This stunningly restored antebellum mansion, the largest in the South, now welcomes visitors daily from all over the world. This book not only tells the stories of Nottoways past, it is also filled with gorgeous photos that celebrate her present - still the stunning crown jewel of southern antebellum homes.
