Significance: Buckhorn Manor, with its outbuildings, is a good example of the plantations that flourished in the Jackson River valley before the Civil War. The plantation buildings, three of which remain intact, are of interest architecturally as representative of pre-Civil War plantation buildings in a rural, remote region and agriculturally as a complex of buildings which formed a working nineteenth century farm unit. A log structure on the property, used as a plantation kitchen, reportedly was built in 1742 for protection from Indians. If this date is accurate, the structure is one of the earliest in the area.
