Birdsville Plantation was built in the 1700s on land that King George III gave to Welshman Francis Jones. Construction on the plantation house began in 1782, but many additions were made over the years. Legend has it that Union soldiers, searching for the family’s treasure, dug up the bodies of the family’s twins and set fire to the house. Ghost stories about the place include the sound of children crying in the night and doors that open and close by themselves.
