  •  Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation (8+ / 0-)

    Is part of the Georgia state park system located near Brunswick, Georgia.  Link is here.  This was a slave plantation before the Civil War, which became a dairy after the Civil War until 1942.  The linked site doesn't say why they closed the dairy, but the docents will tell you that in 1942 the Georgia legislature mandated pasteurization for all sales of milk in Georgia, so the owners shut down the dairy rather than comply with the law.
