Company info

Linden is owned by Marjorie Feltus Hawkins and her husband David Hawkins. Marjorie is the 6th generation of her family to own and live at Linden. Marjorie and David are committed to keeping Linden the historically significant home it has been for over 200 years. Rising gracefully from the top of a gentle slope and set behind mossy oaks and magnificent cedars, Linden is the epitome of dignity, comfort and hospitality.

Property info

Presently owned by a 6th generation ancestor, built by Alexander Moore the to his son, James Moore, the central two-story, 4-room section of the mansion was constructed in 1780, and known as “Oaklands”. In 1818, the United States Senator and former Attorney General of Mississippi, Thomas Buck Reed, purchased the property from Moore and renamed it “Reedland”. Senator Reed made his mark on the house by adding the stunning frontispiece to the doorway as well as the existing East wing. Shortly before his death, which occurred while en route to take his seat in Washington D.C, Senator Reed sold the residence to Dr. John Ker in 1829. Having moved to Natchez after President Thomas Jefferson appointed Ker’s father to the Supreme Court of Mississippi, Dr. John Ker became a prominent physician and planter in the area. Once Ker attained ownership, he changed the name to “Linden”. Ker also left his mark on the mansion by adding the living room and the front gallery. With these additions, Linden reached its present form. In 1849, Jane E. Conner purchased Linden after her husband died, for herself and her 9 children. She planted 7 Cedars of Lebanon in front of Linden, which still stand today.
