Founded in the 1840s, the Jackson Plantation was the second of three plantations developed by Abner Jackson. Formerly known as “Lake Place,” the site was once a bustling sugar plantation that stretched over 4,642 acres with more than 80 enslaved workers.
Significant to the history of industrialized sugar production in Brazoria County, it has been designated as a State Antiquities Landmark by the Texas Historical Commission. Visitors can explore this historic site, most notably those of the main house and sugar mill.
