Inspiration Tour
There are interesting stories behind
the unique personality of each Sweet Bottom Plantation home. Included in this section are examples of residences paired with their particular inspirational home from the 18th and 19th centuries.

In most cases the original house still exists and many are in the National Register of Historic Places. The selection of specific homes in the planning stage of Sweet Bottom was a task that included visiting the original locales and taking hundreds of photos. Each residence was painstakingly selected not just on its own inspirational merits, but how it would fit together with its immediate neighbors as well as the overall neighborhood concept.

While not every Sweet Bottom Plantation residence is included in this comparative tour, the examples shown represent the breadth and richness of 18th and 19th century architectural styles in America.
