Built in 1826 by Willis McDonald (a Revolutionary War veteran)

The China Grove Plantation is a historic Southern plantation in Natchez, Adams County, Mississippi.  It is located in South Natchez, near Sibley.[2]

The woof-framed cottage was built in 1854.[2] It has two main rooms, cabinets and galleries.[2] In 1854, James Railey, who already owned the Oakland Plantation, purchased this property.[3] However, after his death, his heirs lost the property due to a chancery lawsuit.[3]

A few years after the American Civil War of 1861-1865, in 1869, former slaves Auguste Mazique and his wife Sarah purchased the property at a public auction.[2][3][4] They became the largest landowners in southwestern Adams County by the end of the nineteenth century.[3]
