Stanton died in 1859, not too long after his house was finished. The house remained in his family until 1894. Later, Stanton Hall was purchased by the Pilgrimage Garden Club in 1938, where elegant social functions take place. On the grounds, members enjoy a swimming pool shaded by centuries-old ancient oaks. Across the patio is the Carriage House Restaurant and Lounge, which specializes in Southern fried chicken and mint juleps.
Tours from the visitor center will drive you past here. The spring or fall pilgrimages offer a view of this site, along with other plantations.
