Morrison Family for Lebanon Plantation

Savannah - Chatham County

Savannah, Chatham County

Established in the late 18th century as a rice plantation and then as a cotton plantation, Lebanon Plantation was abandoned after the Civil War until it was acquired in 1916 by Mills B. Lane, a Savannah banker who envisioned a location for agricultural experimentation. Currently owned by Lane’s grandson Howard Morrison, Jr. and his wife Mary Reynolds Morrison, the third generation of the Lane-Morrison family to continuously own Lebanon, the property’s preservation and continual use reflect coastal Georgia’s unique agricultural and architectural history.
