Historic Plantation Leindo is one of the older land grants in Texas . It is the site of the first large cotton plantation in Texas located near Hempstead and is the plantation mentioned in Texas History texts as Groce’s Plantation where the Texas Army stopped to train before its victory at San Jacinto.

The house that is on the site hosted Sam Houston and George Custer. It is a great setting for a living history event. The year 2013 will mark the forteenth year of the event and the 15th birthday of the 3rd Texas Cavalry Living History Group as we know it.
