In Response To: Re: Woodlawn Plantation Brinkleyville,Halifax, NC ()
You were asking about Woodlawn Plantation. I have an old map of Halifax and Northampton counties. The Plantation is located between Halifax and Weldon which is now very close to Hwy. 301. There was an old horse racing track on this road called Hew Hope Race Track there was also a race track called Chantilly about a mile southeast of the New Hope Race track. The Plantation house was located between the two. This house was built by Colonel Wood J. Hamblin after his death it became the home of the Austin Family. The house burned long ago but it stood in a grove a hundred yards or so from the road.
