This 1750 La Grange valley farmstead was built as a sugar plantation, but was converted to a cattle ranch after it became the home of Danish cattle farmer Carl Lawaetz in 1896. Here he and his wife, Marie, raised Senegal cattle and seven children. Today you can tour the house, filled with turn-of-the-20th-century antiques and family heirlooms. The grounds also hold the ruins of the plantation’s old sugar mill, as well as flowers and tropical trees and bushes. Inside, touchingly, Marie’s paintings still hang in almost every room.
