Liendo Plantation [TX]

Liendo Plantation was founded in 1853 as one of the earliest cotton plantations in Texas. Union officer George A. Custer (1839-1876) was stationed at the plantation toward the end of the Civil War; and the site was home to sculptor Elisabet Ney (1833-1907) and her husband between 1873 and 1911. The site also houses a Detering Red Brahman cow breeding program, and hosts an annual Civil War weekend.

The plantation offers guided tours and period rooms. Reservations are required for group tours. Boxed lunches are available. Please contact the plantation for more information.
