Old South Meets NYC at Home of ‘The Help’ Director

To make sure that his beautiful 1836 Mississippi mansion didn’t turn out too much like Grandma’s – all teddy bears and rocking chairs – film director Tate Taylor called on the help of New York City designer Shawn Henderson. The renovation lasted three years and added 11 bathrooms (among many other improvements).

The antebellum estate is called Wyolah Plantation, 100 acres in Church Hill, just north of Natchez, Mississippi. Click here for more details and pictures on ArchitecturalDigest.com.
