Of the many landmarks of the Halifax country, one of which probably the least is known is the old Bulow Plantation, the remains of which are found near the old King’s Road approximately eleven miles north of the city of Ormond. Owing to the extreme difficulty in gaining access to the place, it is but seldom frequented and consequently little known. But this does not signify its lack of historical value. On the contrary, it is quite the opposite. For it was not only the most extensive plantation ever to exist in the Halifax country, but it also was occupied as military headquarters in the war with the Indians by Major Benjamin A. Putnam.
