LaGrange, GA – Why did they name this Nutwood? What’s up with that? I was curious, and learned that when this antebellum house was built in 1833, they planted the first pecan trees in the county here on what became a 440 acre plantation. People made the trek to this house to look at the pecan trees!
Looking down the long driveway, it almost looks like it’s from a movie set. When you go around the side of the house you then realize it was built in an “L” shape. A couple of the outbuildings have also survived, the kitchen building and the smokehouse.
I went to Nutwood shortly after it was sold last year and it was just under renovation to become an event facility. Good to see a home that was once “at risk” being saved
