MONTE VERDI meaning "Green Mountain" is located high on a hill in Rusk County Texas. It is said that from the upper gallery a person can see four different counties. Monte Verdi is an architectural showplace built in the Greek Revival style and was completed in 1856. The mansion was built by Julien Sidney Devereux and was situated on his 10,721 acre plantation.

The mansion received its Texas Historical Medallion in 1964. A log cabin built in 1844 and is an excellent example of the "Saddle Bag" architecture was moved to the site of the original plantation kitchen. The cabin received its own Texas Historical Medallion in 1967.

The plantation is now owned by Joe & Cecilia Koch. They have spent much time and travel to furnish the home with the appropriate period pieces of furniture. Their home is now open to the public on occasion throughout the year, and always available for tours by appointment. They are particularly pleased to offer the home for tours in full knowledge of how perfectly and graciously Monte Verdi captures the culture of bygone days.
