From the original brick house built in 1753 to the 1818 mansion that is said to be haunted by the ghost of an old slave woman who lived on the plantation, Darshana Hall Plantation is a historical treasure. The property was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
Darshana Hall Plantation is located in the eastern part of Iredell and owned by Dr. Meredith Hall and his wife Susan. The original brick home stands just a few yards from the main house and was built in 1753 by pioneer John McElwrath. The second owners of the plantation were the Chambers family who expanded the cotton plantation from 4,000 acres to 12,000 acres and built a stately Federal style home complete with a two-tier portico in 1818.
