The exuberant and eccentric ornament of the Greek Revival-Italianate frame plantation house has been attributed to Day's shop as representing its most ornate and eccentric expression of repetitive curvilinear forms. Its date of construction is not certain, and part of the second floor was left unfinished. The house was probably built for Dr. John T. Garland (1795-1874), who owned the plantation from 1835 onward.
