Waveland is an antebellum plantation that was established in the early 1800s. It was originally owned by Joseph Bryan, a prominent figure in Lexington and Grandnephew to Daniel Boone. Joseph later passed on to his son, Daniel Bryan. The plantation was primarily a hemp and tobacco farm and it encompassed thousands of acres of fertile land. In addition to the main house, the Waveland State Historic Site features several outbuildings that offer further insights into plantation life. These structures include a smokehouse, icehouse, slave quarters, and a kitchen. Exploring these buildings provides a deeper understanding of the operations and functions of a plantation during the antebellum era. (Submitted by Anthony Von Plinsky)
