Through the decades,thousands have driven a winding road from Port Gibson,Mississippi,
to see the stately columns which are all that remain of Windsor,
one of the most magnificent homes in the antebellum South.
Windsor,built betwenn 1859 and 1861,was the home of Smith Coffee Daniel,II,
a wealthy planter who had extensive properties in the Delta and Arkansas.
Completed in 1861,the home was the largest house built at that time,
the plantation once covered over 2,600 acres.From the elaborate furnishings
to the wrought iron staircase,the four story home was designed to reflect the height of Southern life at the time.
