Significance: It was purchased in 1814 by Peter Nelson Hairston from General Jesse Pearson. The plantation contained approximately 4,500 acres, and the present house is on a hill overlooking the Yadkin River. Construction on the house was started in 1850 and finished in 1854. There is no record of an architect being connected directly with the plantation house, but drawings on an "Anglo-Grecian Villa" published in W.H. Ranlett's The Architect and also in Godey's Lady's Book were used to build the house.
