Longwood Plantation

Longwood Plantation, also known as Nutt’s Folly, whose construction began in the 1860s. Rather than the usual Greek Revival style the architect chose to create a multistory, octagonal, Oriental Revival style plantation home. The house is six stories tall and has a large byzantine styled dome. Samuel Sloan, a Philadelphia architect, designed the home in 1859 for cotton planter Dr. Haller Nutt.
