Archeology and History of the Robinson-West River Plantation 1857-2011
The reader of this book will be taken on a fascinating journey from the earliest days of the historic Robinson plantation of 150 years ago, to its present day name of the West River Plantation. Carved out of the wilderness of east Texas , the estate rose to immense prosperity during the industrial revolution, only to fall into inevitable decline and tragedy. Reduced to a few acres, and the home in disrepair in the late 1970s, the estate would be sold to the West family. The era of the once great plantation of 3500 acres was fast fading into history, as well as the memory of the Robinson family. But with the recent discovery of a multitude of artifacts by the West family, and the building of a museum on the estate, the dying plantation, and the memory of the Robinsons is beginning to live once again. The book delivers eye-witness accounts of life changing events in the Robinson family, and lists many of the artifacts found, and follow-up research done by the author. From the days of General Sam Houston dancing in the foyer of the Victorian house, to the sounds of many children laughing and playing, to the designation of the plantation as a State Archeological Landmark, the reader will be captivated by this account of early Texas history.
