A Place Called Somerset

Record #:
Built by Josiah Collins in the late 1700s, Somerset Place was one of the state's most prosperous plantations in pre-Civil War days. Debt and the Civil War began its downward spiral. In 1889, it was sold out of the family, passing through numerous owners until acquired by the state in 1939. Now almost restored, it is a State Historic Site.
