a luncheon get-together and shopping, a memory is being made
in this tranquil setting. Hear the roosters crowing or
watch the
guineas run for bugs, you will be amused and a smile will come
across your face. Come experience pure joy in the country
life at Watermelon Moon Farm!
William Washington Seay Home
Listed on the National Historic Register
The historic homestead built between 1835-1845
offers the ambiance of an earlier time. Remarkable
stone masonry are displayed in the gigantic
chimneys, porch steps and foundation. Original
faux-grain painting is also evident on much of the
upstairs windows and doors. This too displays
artistic craftsmanship of a bygone era. This grand
house was built as an exact replica of a Louisiana
plantation home visited and admired by Seay on
visits to New Orleans. Frequent trips were made
to that area by riverboat to sell the tobacco grown
on the plantation. Artifacts found under the home's
Summer Kitchen possibly reflect those visits to
that area - whale rib-bone and harpoon.
