Plantation Wildlife Area

The H.R. Pettit Estate donated this ten acre area which was the former site of the Plantation Ballroom.  It could seat 750 people, but was reported to accomodate as many as 1,500.  It drew such name bands as Lawrence Welk, Russ Morgan and the Six Fat Dutchmen. The ballroom burned to the ground in 1961. Most of the area is covered with mature trees and the former parking area is open.
