Plantation House


This is an unsual view of the Plantation House (or Chicken Plantation?) that formerly stood at the bend in the Rivers of America. Eventually it would be removed for the addition of New Orleans Square. Some say that if you stand in the general vicinity today, you'll hear the clucking of ghostly chickens!

Until I saw this photo, I wasn't aware that this building looked as if it was built from adobe when viewed from the side. When viewed from the river (or the Mark Twain) it look like a stately southern plantation - - with lots of tables.

Wow! What an awesome shot! I have never seen one of the Plantation House like that. Nice job!

It was known as the "Hacienda" side.... NIce color on that one! I have some color slides of this, but sadly they are blurry....

Great shot Major. Almost all of the graphics for the Swifts Plantation House show the Southern Mansion side and not the Hacienda side. Definitely one of those places that was not documented very well.

Yeah I have one shot even tighter of the side but I had no idea what it was good ID
