Twenty tree majestic Corinthian columns are all that remain of what was once a magnificent mansion in southwest Mississippi, Windsor Plantation. The mansion was completed prior to the Civil War in 1860 for a total cost of only $175,000. It was built by Smith Daniel Coffee, II, who died a couple of weeks after it was completed.
Located near Port Gibson, Mississippi on a rural two-lane Mississippi highway, the home sits a few hundred yards off the road, guarded by a magnificent large oak tree that was most likely a small sapling when the home was built. General Ulysses Grant declared Port Gibson "too pretty to burn" when he was marching through the area.
It served as a hospital for the Union troops during the Civil War. The house burned in 1890 after a carpenter working on the third floor dropped a cigar in some debris. The ruins were used during the filming of of the movie "Raintree County" that starred Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift.
