Meadow Woods is one of the oldest standing homes in Oktibbeha County. This traditional antebellum home in the Oktoc area is on the National Historic Register, but is privately owned and not open to the public. The house has been owned by members of the same family since 1848, can be definitely dated to 1841, and is known to have been built a few years earlier. While Meadow Woods is certainly remarkable as one of the fewer than ten antebellum homes remaining in Oktibbeha County, the existence of the Nannie Herndon Rice Family Papers, a nearly complete set of documentation of the plantation and the families connected with the house, is even more remarkable.
