Description:

In 1854 Thomas Evans and Serena Chesnut Haile moved their family to Gainesville where they established a 1,500-acre Sea Island cotton plantation they named Kanapaha. Completed in 1856 by enslaved craftsmen, the 6,200-square-foot manse is one of the few remaining antebellum homes in North Central Florida. The restored Historic Haile Homestead is unique in the nation for its "Talking Walls." The Haile family and friends wrote on the walls of the home, all together over 12,500 words.
