King and Anderson Plantation photos


I've established a new Sunflower Plantation web site (and this ain't it!).  It's about 95% done but is already better than this one.  Better organized, better photos and new write-ups.
Go there and take a look

I'll leave this old one up for a while, but you really should use the new one.
Thanks,

King and Anderson Plantation is about two miles east of Stovall on the Friars Point Road.  The owners were J.W. King and J.A. Anderson.
