The Southdown Plantation, now a museum, was a sugar plantation in the 19th century. It has been restored and now visitors can see the manor house, worker’s cabin, and slave quarters, along with a gift shop and gallery.
According to local lore, a past plantation owner raped female slaves and murdered other slaves on the property. Visitors have reported seeing apparitions in the windows of the manor house and slaves quarters even during the daytime hours.
