Buckland

Once called "Maurice Manor," Buckland is unusual for the area and period it was built in because it is a "saltbox" structure with an interior kitchen. The land was purchased by John Rix in 1744. Early records indicate a house had been built by 1742. It once sat at the center of a working plantation, which was then subdivided in the 1880's. The interior is especially noted for its ornate carved plasterwork.
