The Faunsdale Plantation is a historic plantation located in Faunsdale, Alabama. It was established in 1843 by Dr. Thomas Alexander Harrison, a physician and planter from Virginia. The site got its name from the ancient Roman deity Faunus, and the town was named after it when Dr. Harrison died in 1858 from a buggy accident.

The Faunsdale Plantation is also noted for having a detailed slave records. It is said that Dr. Harrison brought in a large number of slaves from Virginia, and apparently, someone took the great initiative to record them extensively. This makes the site one of the few plantations in Alabama to have such records.

The Faunsdale Plantation is now a US Historic District as well as a part of the National Register of Historic Places.
