Enterprise: Most scenic spot on the river

In 1845, Whitfield Brooks, a guest staying at Taylor’s inn on top of the Enterprise shell mound, characterized “Major Taylor’s plantation” as the most charming and romantic spot he had ever encountered on the river. The plantation spread out around the shell mound along the lakeshore bounded on the east by the Green Springs run.

With the proper companionship, Brooks declared, Taylor’s plantation would be “the sweetest spot imaginable to spend a winter.” He declared it to have “more attractive qualities that inspire the imagination” than any place he had seen.
