The Delta

Linden Plantation was the first home site settled in Washington County, Mississippi. This natural high spot is nestled on the banks of Lake Washington which was once the mighty Mississippi River. The location has been a natural gathering place as long as people have inhabited the area. The Mississippi Delta has been through as many changes over the years as there are turns in the Big River. From the times of Ponce de Leon and Hernando Desoto, to the days when cotton was king,  to the birth of the blues, to today, this fertile swath of land has provided sustenance for the people of Mississippi and our nation. Come and visit some of the historic antebellum homes within an easy drive of Linden Plantation or listen to some Delta Blues at a real Juke Joint. No matter what route you travel or what adventure you chose, you are sure to encounter the slower pace of life set by the people of the Delta. These flat lands allow for stunning panoramic views of sunrises and sunsets that will rival any you will see on the coast. You will rarely see stars as bright as they appear in the Delta night time darkness. Come join us and let us show you the best that the Mississippi Delta has to offer.
