Originally Known as
Built in 1852 by Miles Walker Lewis, the Washington Grass Inn was originally named "Woodlawn". It was a 1,500 acre self-sustaining cotton plantation. One of our "claims to fame" was Alexander Stephens (Vice President of the Confederacy) visited Woodlawn on numerous occasions, as he was a dedicated friend of the Lewis family. The 1,500 acres is still owned by the Lewis family, with the exception of the 13 acres that is now know as The Washington Grass Inn on Woodlawn Plantation.
