When Angela Birdsong was a little girl, she fell in love...
with a mansion. She saw the potential for a romantic life
restored in the brick walls of New Canton Plantation.
Today, Angela and her husband Bill are the Plantations owners.
They have restored the mansion giving attention to every detail
bringing back the mystique and elegance of the Old South.
The majestic steps leading up to the mansion speak of
tradition and refinement. One can almost hear the rustle of
taffeta skirts inside the stately parlors. New Canton is not a
fabrication. It is living history.
Prepare for a getaway of romance, elegance, and historic
intrigue amidst 50 rolling acres of privacy and beauty.
The expansive property was originally granted
by the King of England in the late 1700’s. By 1840, the
mansion was built by the Hord family and is one of the few
remaining plantation homes surviving today. Thoughtfully
furnished with period art and antiques, the Plantation is
reminiscent of the true Antebellum South.
This unique setting offers so much to enjoy and experience.
Stroll the secluded grounds, wander through the mansion,
and indulge in the rich history of a bygone era. New Canton
Plantation is a wonderful gathering place for family and
friends. Separate and spacious bridal suite and groom’s
quarters offer privacy to the bridal party. Large trees
offer breathtaking ceremony sites and photo opportunities.
Guests can mingle in the house and into a large
tented reception area.
Located just off Highway 11W and minutes from Kingsport,
guests can easily access dining, accommodations and the
regional airport. The Plantation can easily host up to 150
guests. Parking is on site and assisted by attendants. The
staff is eager to provide customized services for your
special needs. Let The Plantation add the privacy, charm,
and sophistication for an event that will never be forgotten.
