Silver Lake Historic Site - DeSoto Parish

Built between 1849 and 1855, Silver Lake is a tradition plantation-style house, boasting four tall columns, a wide porch, and six fireplaces. Though of that style, it was never part of a large plantation. The house was built on huge piers and sills, which uniquely includes a tree, 48' x 2' that supports the front part of the house. It is estimated that the tree is over 250 years old!
