Rounds (Glen Aubin) Plantation in Photos

Fully Restored Rounds Plantation 1985
Rounds Plantation 1983, Sibley, Mississippi
 One of the most difficult things for me to find was an image of the Rounds Family Plantation in Adams County, Mississippi. The best image that I'd had was a lopsided photo taken in the mid-1980's with a 110 film camera. (Remember those??) Needless to say the photo quality was not the greatest, even during that time. After searching the internet for photos of this place which is on the National Register of Historic Places and coming up empty, I was able to find photos of a pre-restored Rounds Plantation in the application for it to gain this status at MDAH (Mississippi Department of Archives and History). These are the first images of the inside of the home that I've ever seen. I can only imagine what it was like during the Antebellum and Reconstruction Era. It must've been beautiful!

It is a beautiful home. I just love a house with a porch...Those walls have witness joy and pain.

LindaRe, the home was nicely restored. I'm glad that I was able to find the documentation on MDAH's website. The citations definitely helped in furthering my research into the family.
