Trip to Latta Plantation On Thursday, April 30, members of the History Club visited Historic Latta Plantation. Built about 1800, the house is close to Huntersville on the Catawba River. Club members looked at the small museum and interpretive center and toured the house, which has been restored with furniture and artifacts to represent the era of the Early Republic. The site also has a working historical farm. Further Information about Historic Latta Plantation is at: http://www.lattaplantation.org/latta/index.php
