Manila Plantation History: In 1829, General John Brantley built a lovely Georgian-styled plantation about six miles northeast of Selma in an area known as Veto. The name of the house and the area was changed to "Manila" to commemorate Admiral George Dewey's victory over the Spanish fleet at Manila Bay in 1898. Fire destroyed the house in 1929. Four generations of the Brantley family are buried in the family cemetery near the home site. The present Manila, built in 1967, is in the Louisiana Plantation style, patterned after a house on the famed River Road leading to New Orleans. It stands on the site of the original Manila, and the bricks in the chimneys are from the old house. It is owned today by Larry D. Striplin, Jr., who purchased it in 1997.
