A National Historic Landmark, built in 1843-1845 by George Washington Polk, son of Col William Polk of the Revolution.  The Estate was won by the Colonel from the Governor of North Carolina. When the Colonel divided up the large tract, George named his portion of the property after the game, Rattle and Snap.  After changing ownership over the years, Rattle and Snap is now owned by Dr. and Mrs. Michael Kaslow.  The Plantation is open for tours and overnight stays.
