The plantation, was established by Loyalists who left the United States during the American War of Independence between 1775 and 1783 to remain loyal to the British crown.
By the mid 19th century, the cotton plantation at the Hermitage was no longer economically viable and was put up for sale. Wild cotton still grows on the property, a reminder of its former years.
