About Historic Sam Davis Home & Plantation
At the Historic Sam Davis Home & Plantation, history isn't just something you learn about—it's something you can walk around in. Sam Davis was a Confederate courier who was hanged by the Union army as a spy. Visitors can tour his homestead on the 168 remaining acres of his father's plantation. Thanks to the efforts of Sam's niece Andromedia Sinnott, who founded the Sam Davis Memorial Association in 1930, many of the estate's original buildings are still standing. This allows visitors to find out what life was like on the front lines of the Civil War, what toys children of that time period played with, and how the more than 50 slaves who worked on the plantation lived day-to-day.
