Once occupying a space of over a thousand acres, Bill Parker's Trent River Plantation in Pollocksville, only now spans 15 acres. The Manor House, bordered by Highway 17 and the Trent River, contains antiques from up and down the east coast, all of which are for sale. Guests can reserve one of the huge bedrooms in the Manor House and swim in the 50-foot pool, stroll along forest lanes, or go fishing on the Trent River. There are over 250 farm animals at the plantation, all of which guests can pet and feed. Local schools host field trips to the plantation just to see the animals. New ideas for tourist attractions occur to Bill Parker each year. These include moonlight river cruises, a Tennessee walking horse breeding operation, and even complete 18th-century escape weekends, offered by the Manor House working in cooperation with other area historic attractions.
