Abner Jackson Plantation Site

The Abner Jackson Plantation archeological site was once the home of a prosperous sugar plantation owned by Major Abner Jackson, namesake of the city of Lake Jackson. Like many structures of its time, the plantation was destroyed by the Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900. Today, the site offers tours on the first Saturday of each month, where visitors can learn about the early sugar making process, how convict labor replaced slave labor during the 1870s, and the destruction of the hurricane of 1900. This site is managed by the Lake Jackson Historical Museum.
