This Mesmerizing Footage Of An Abandoned Missouri Plantation Will Blow Your Mind

In this video, BackyardExploration takes you on a tour of a rural Missouri plantation. It features footage of an 1830s home, cemetery, single room chapel, and various outbuildings. The founder of this property was born in 1796 in England. He moved to America one year after his 1820 marriage. He purchased this land in 1834 and built a house on it. Eventually, he expanded his estate to a 1,500-acre plantation, took up mining and milling, and became one of the most prominent men in the county.
