Pebble Hill Plantation Film Collection Pebble Hill Plantation Film Collection

The home movie collection features members of the extended Ohio-based Hanna family (notably, Howard Hanna, Jr., his wife, Claire, and their children) at the Thomasville, Georgia hunting plantation Pebble Hill and in Kentucky and Ohio; friends and plantation workers;, a summer home in Maine; and animals (mostly horses and dogs) that were part of life at the Pebble Hill. Several reels feature horse shows and jumping events, some being commercially-made films about such events in the 1920s. Other home movies are typical of the genre and show Christmas holidays at home, travel scenes abroad, and summertime at a swimming pool or the beach, however, the bulk of the films have to do with riding or hunting.
