Site Marker: Winter Quarters Plantation was owned by Haller Nutt during the Civil War. The plantation was used as an overnight stopping point by thousands of Federal troops on their march to Hard Times. The first to arrive was Col. J. Keigwin's force, which spent the night of April 28, 1863 here. Winters Quarters was the only plantation home of the fifteen along Lake St. Joseph left standing after the Union march
