Hempstead: Liendo Plantation

The 1853 Liendo Plantation — built by Texas Revolution supporter Leonard Waller Groce — represents one of the state’s earliest cotton plantations. Noted Texas sculptor Elisabet Ney owned the plantation at one time and is buried under a spreading oak on the grounds. Liendo is now a private residence open for tours on the first Saturday of the most months.
