Many of our returning guests say “I’m Home” as they walk through the door.
The home was built in the early 1870s by Thomas Thompson Land, a Louisiana Supreme Court Judge. Thomas and his wife, Mary Eliza Dillingham, were the proud parents of 15 children born over a 22-year period. A portion of the land which the home sits on was previously part of the Thornhill Plantation. The property remained in the Land family for more than 91 years. Fairfield Place may well be one of the oldest surviving homes on the street.
