We didn’t realize we have been living very near a historic plantation until we checked out Waveland. It is only a 7 minute drive from home and very close to the train track. What a neat plantation, complete with a slave quarter, children playhouse, a playground, a pond, a shallow stream under a wooden bridge, a walking trail and quite a few empty green spaces!
Jacob was thrilled when we found an old cemetery dated back to before the civil war on the grounds. The headstones are quite worn out with barely legible carved words.
James was thrilled when the train passed by the field where we were playing.
