On this site from 1844-1879 stood the plantation of Maj. John Sharpe Rowland and Frances Lewis Rowland. The plantation comprised some 2,500 acres. Rowland's Ferry was located just northeast of here at the mouth of Pettit's Creek. The Rowlands also owned Rowland Springs which was approximately 9.5 miles northeast of here. It was the most exclusive resort in the State of Georgia in the mid 19th century.

John Rowland was a veteran of the War of 1812 and served as Superintendent of the Western & Atlantic Railroad from 1861-1863. Frances Rowland was an accomplished spinner and weaver who received many awards for her work. Both were generous philanthropists, and assisted the hospitals and needy families of the Confederacy during the Civil War.

The family lies on the hilltop above, and the plantation manse stood approximately 300 feet southwest of the cemetery.
