History

Valhalla was originally part of Chemonie Plantation, one of the first cotton plantations established by wealthy newcomers to the state in the early 1800's.

Hector Braden of Virginia founded Chemonie in the first part of the 1800's. He was a land investor and cotton and sugar cane farmer, and sold Chemonie to his business partner's wife, Mary Wallace Savage Nuttall, a recent widow who owned the nearby El Destino and had also inherited assets enough to buy a second plantation. Nuttall remarried to George Noble Jones in 1840.

In the 20th century, the Ingalls and Ireland families bought Chemonie as a joint venture. David Ingalls was a director of Pan Am Airways and publisher of the Cincinnati Times-Star. Robert Livingston Ireland, Jr, was in the coal business at the M.A. Hanna Company.

Famous hunting stories about the Ingalls and their guests still are shared today. From duck hunts on Gum Pond, to dove shoots in "Humphries Field."

More recently, the property was owned and divided by T. Wayne Davis of the Florida-based Winn Dixie grocery chain. He still owns a neighboring portion of the original plantation.

Today, Valhalla is owned by a landowner who is a specialist in high quality properties and one of the most respected long term buyers in this niche.
