In 1792, Andrew Evans purchased land near the mouth of Boydâ€™s Creek and built a ferry near the site of the old ford. In 1798, Evans sold the farm to John Brabson, and it was henceforth known as the Brabson Ferry Plantation. Today, the farm is still in operation and home to several notable antebellum structures, including two plantation homes and an 18th-century â€œplank house.â€
