Chinquapin Plantation, a private, fully operational, historic property established by philanthropist John F. Archbold. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy a day on a private plantation, indulging in many wonderful elements of the sporting life, just 4 miles from downtown Thomasville, while supporting @talltimbersresearch

An example of an equally balanced Plantation designed for entertainment and outdoor recreation. This beautiful and historical property is located 4 miles from downtown Thomasville and has a rare abundance of the area’s premiere pristine hardwoods, it runs along the Ochlocknee River and is located across from Greenwood Plantation.

Chinquapin is a 1,318 +/- acre historic Thomasville Plantation featuring a unique 18,000 square foot architecturally significant home built in 1910 by Standard Oil Company heir, John F. "Jack" Archbold, and designed by famous architect A.S. Bell of New York. The home is designed for entertaining and has been recently updated. This beautiful Red Hills Plantation is located in the most prestigious of neighborhoods only five minutes to downtown Thomasville, Georgia and bordered by and in a neighborhood of other plantations. Chinquapin boasts 5.2 miles on the Ockclocknee River with unmatched river bluffs, has a rare abundance of the area’s premiere pristine hardwoods, beautiful rolling topography, and the pine savannah hills are exceptional. The ecotone between the river and the pine uplands is unparalleled and exceptionally beautiful. The plantation has several ponds, giant old live oaks draped in moss, very good soils, pastoral fields, and exceptional timber. The topography at Chinquapin is much more dramatic than what one would expect in the Red Hills; it has incredible draws and rolling hills, a “spectacular roll”. There is wild quail, exceptional deer and turkey, ducks, and dove. With the close proximity to Thomasville, the ability to entertain at Chinquapin is unparalleled. Chinquapin is perhaps the best example of an equally balanced plantation designed for entertainment and outdoor recreation.

Located on a bluff overlooking the Ochlocknee River, the main house alone is nearly 18,000 square feet and is on equal footing with some of the nation's most prestigious houses. In 1910, Mr. Archbold built the house as a winter retreat where he could focus on writing and painting. He also loved to entertain. Just as importantly, this plantation has some of the last remaining examples of pre-Columbian untouched hardwood and pine bottoms as any property still in private hands today. In fact, the portion across the river is now owned by the State of Georgia and forever preserved!
