PHOTOS: An antebellum plantation in Nelson County returns to family hands

Perched on a knoll in the mountains of Nelson County sits the Pharsalia plantation — a squat white home with a green tin roof.

Named for the epic poem depicting the civil war between Julius Caesar and the forces of the Roman Senate, Pharsalia was built in 1814 by Revolutionary War veteran Major Thomas Massie as a wedding present for his youngest son William Massie.
