Levy House ca. 1825 at Plantation Village Studios

52nd Jackson Assembly Antiques and Art Show 

March 24, 25, 26,  2017

Tours from noon to 4 p.m. daily
     Used as a residence, school for young ladies,  boarding house, hotel,  restaurant, and now as a  residence again, the Levy House was destined to serve a long and useful existence.  The house is believed to have been built around  1825.  Vacant for many years prior to its purchase in 1968  by the Robert Couhigs of Asphodel Plantation,  it was  moved in pieces from Jackson  onto  plantation property to be used as Asphodel Inn’s restaurant, known for its home-cooked meals and famous Asphodel bread.  The original Asphodel Plantation is a private residence located nearby with different owners. It is not on tour.
     There was no architectural change during the restoration. The wide gallery across the front of the house  extends along the full width of the structure.  The vast expansive roof is supported by  heart pine 38 feet long with no splicing — probably some of the longest of that type in any building in the area.  
    The Levy House was  originally located  across the street from the Presbyterian Church  on Bank Street in Jackson.     
      The  Jackson Assembly is honored and pleased to offer the Levy House at Plantation Village Studios as the 2017 featured tour during the 52nd Jackson Assembly  Antiques and Art Show on March 24, 25, 26, 2017. The site is now operated as a film studio with sound stage, production facilities and screening room.  The owner and his wife and three children live in the Levy House.  Plantation Village Studios is located  6  miles south of  Jackson at 4626  Highway 68.
