Jackson Plantation House
Greene County, Georgia
In the spring of 1939, photographer Marion Post Wolcott traveled to Greene County, Georgia and took photographs in the area and photographer Jack Delano visited there in 1941. They took many photographs of old abandoned plantation houses such as theses of Jackson Plantation House.
In the late 1840s, James Jackson built a grand plantation in Greene County near White Plains. His youngest son, William Reid Jackson, was the only son to survive the Civil War and thus inherited the plantation.

William Jackson’s wife preferred city life over plantation living, so they built a Victorian home in downtown Greensboro (later moved to Reynolds Plantation in 1988 by William’s grandson, James Madison Reynolds, Jr.). Once the family moved to town, the old plantation home fell into disrepair and was eventually torn down in the 1940s.
Another photographer Jack Delano took photographs of the site in 1941.
