Cedar Plantation dates back to the Civil War. According to recent architectural findings, it is believed that construction of this home dates back prior to the Civil War. The house was probably built as a "Salt Box Plantation". E.L. Shuford was a young, wealthy carpetbagger from the north, a bachelor who enjoyed big parties and entertaining his guests in grand style.

The residence of the Abbott family for close to 100 years

Mrs. Abbott named the estate "The Cedars" because of the huge beautiful trees that adorn the property. She told her grandchildren that on a clear day, she could see Red Top Mountain and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Mrs. Abbott enjoyed writing. She had printed stationery that read: "writing to you from the Cedars".
