Scottland Plantation was the home of Thomas B. Scott, the first sheriff of Madison Parish. The house was bought and restored by Lt. Col. (ret.) Porter Johnson. Lt. Col. Johnson had served in Iraq during 2010-2011 with the Army’s Strategic Effects Branch, and he was involved in the restoration of war-damaged historical sites. He bought Scottland Plantation after his return to his hometown. His scope of work included replacing the roof and repairing windows.
