About Linden Plantation and Gardens

"One of the loveliest landscapes in America," is how the Delta Queen Steamboat Company describes Linden Plantation.  Follow a sunken road back in time to visit an 1820's plantation founded by the Vick family who founded Vicksburg and passed down through four generations to the present owners.

Over 750 azaleas lead you down the formal driveway to a formal entrance flanked by four 160-year-old magnolias.  Stand among the historic trees of equally historic Warren County and experience the time when Union troops marching into Vicksburg camped on its grounds and attended their wounded from fresh battles at Champions Hill, Raymond and Big Black.

Bryan and Joy Brabston have restored the land and created eight acres of formal and informal gardens on the estate.  In its history, Linden has served as a working farm.  Now it is home to one of the South's great garden and historic tour sites, and a residence that features much of the feel and furnishings of the original plantation home.

The present home is modeled after 1790 Creole Plantation home and features furniture, china, and paintings from the original period.  House and gardens have been featured in "Bountiful Flower Garden" by Odenwald and Welsh and Jim Wilson's "Gardening Through the Golden Years."
