This is the old plantation house that burned over the past weekend.
It was at one time owned by the Pipes family of E. Feliciana Parish.
Martha Witherington Pipes (first wife of David Washington Pipes, Sr.)
is buried there in the Pipes Cemetery located on the original plantation grounds,
about half way between Clinton and Norwood, LA.
