Windsor Battlefield Tour

Ca. 1815. Located almost one mile southwest, Laurel Hill is in the National Register of Historic Places. A single approach leads from the primary road one-fourth mile toward Rodney down a deeply cut roadbed bordered by moss-draped cedars and oaks. The house itself, now a private home, is a large white two story frame structure designed along simple lines with overhanging eaves protecting double galleries. the lower gallery is supported by square columns, while the second level has round columns. Laurel Hill Plantation was developed by Sr. Rush Nutt, a colorful and ingenious agricultural pioneer of early Mississippi. In 1837, Dr. Nutt died, and is thought to be buried in the family cemetery located just off the drive a few hundred yards northeast of his Laurel Hill Plantation House. The Laurel Hill Cemetery, containing the graves of many members of the Nutt family, is enclosed by a wrought iron fence and features several imposing nineteenth century markers. Buried here , in addition to Dr, Nutt, are his wife and daughters and their descendents. The cemetery also contains the graves of many victims of the yellow fever and cholera epidemics which struck Rodney in 1853 and 1855.
