About: Frank Aultman, Proprietor - Frank was born and raised on Ten Horse Farm and has been restoring the old farm and The Guest House for several years.
Ten Horse Farm's owners are descended from a long line of Southerners. They migrated to South Carolina, to Middle Gerogia, then resettled in Southwest Georgia here at Ten Horse Farm to build a new life after the close of the Civil War. Today, the historic significance of Ten Horse Farm is evident as you drive up the quarter mile-long drive to the Planter's House and surrounding barnyard.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located in Georgia’s historic “Plantation Trace” region, Ten Horse Farm was once one of the largest working plantations in the area during the last half of the 19th century. The community at Ten Horse Farm consisted of the owner’s family, tenant farmers and sharecroppers who prospered by living and working together after the devastating close of the Civil War. The community raised and grew everything they needed. The only thing they bought was salt for seasoning and curing. Unlike Southern Anti-bellum Architecture depicted in movies like 'Gone With The Wind,' Ten Horse Farm's Planter's House represents a more typical plantation style. Plantation owners and their families (including the owner's children) worked side-by-side with tenant farmers and sharecroppers. Ten Horse Farm is noteworthy in that it was among the first to have gravity-fed running water from a water tower to the houses, barns and animal troughs. It was among the first to plant pecan orchards and planted pines. The Planter's House was one of the first in the community to be built with a Delco Plant providing electricity to a light bulb which hung from the ceiling in every room. The 2nd generation owner was instrumental in bringing electricity to this part of the country and was among the first presidents of the regions Rural Electric Company. At Ten Horse Farm, there was a wash house, smoke house, chicken house, mule barn, corn crib, hay barns and several tenant houses on the property. Crops grown consisted of cotton, corn, tobacco, cane, soybeans, peanuts, pecans and timber. Animals raised included cattle, hogs and chickens. Products produced included milk, butter, seed, sugarcane, turpentine and hay. From the beginning, Ten Horse Farm was in the forefront of modern agricultural practices, and invented more than a few.
