A detail of the old Whitesides Plantation home is photographed on an autumn morning. The old Whitesides Plantation home facing the old Aberdeen and Jacinto Public Road is located west of the Tombigbee River in Itawamba County below the old Woodlawn Post Office along Boguefala Creek. James Whitesides operated one of the larger plantations in the county. The home was built during the 1840's and was originally a two-story structure. During Reconstruction, the second floor of the home was removed to make the structure 1 1/2 stories. For further information about James Whitesides and the Whitesides Plantation, refer to an earlier post about the subject.
