Also known as the Frederick Blount Plantation, the Woodlands is a historic plantation house situated in Gosport, Alabama. The structure was completed in 1840 in the Greek Revival and Creole styles. It is also noted for being an excellent wood frame example of the Carolina cottage.

The Woodlands built by the Gosport lawyer Frederick Spaight Blount with the aid of his half-brother James W. Bryan. Blount was also involved in a nationwide controversy in 1858 when he got tangled up in a scandal after accusing a French Army officer of abducting his daughter Emily J. Blount, and wife, Emily James Blount. The whole thing became really popular, although, things were eventually settled and the officer Henri Arnous de Rivi?re was married off to the young Emily Blount.
