- Bull Run Plantation
Originally a large part
Water Oak Plantationowned by Frances C. Griscom, Headley purchased all but a few hundred acres from Griscom in 1951. He named it Bull Run Plantation. Julian C. for herding.
Upon purchasing the property, Headley found that the old Griscom home was too small and in need of extensive repairs. Headley had the house razed and built a new brick
mansionoverlooking Lake Iamonia. He brought in pecanand other expensive wood for the home's interior panelingand finish work. The roofwas over-engineered using rafters which measured 2 feet by 10 feet and set every 12 inches. Headley also built a large bathhouse and swimming poolreportedly to cost $25,000. The bricks from Griscom's home were used along with bricks he brought in from North Carolinato create terraces and walkways.
Headley was a sportsman enjoying
huntingand sports fishing. He preserved large areas of his property especially for hunting and fishing. He constructed a damto slow a small stream that flowed south to north to create the chain of lakes now running through Golden Eagle Country Club. Headley then created his own ducklake called Lake Monkey Business.
1964Headley became attracted to the prospects in Central America, specifically its timberresources. Headley sold his property to a syndicateof sportsmen and left for British Honduras( Belize). The syndicate was interested in a recreational preserve. One of the members overextended the resources of the syndicate causing its end.
