Black River settlements - Orchard Grove Plantation

Does anybody happen to have a photo of Orchard Grove Plantation before it was all falling down? It is located on Black River near Monterrey, LA in Concordia Parish and was first owned by Robert Prater in the early to mid 1800's, and then was purchased by Isaac Newton Beard in the 1850's.

Our family has several photos of the old plantation home, but all show it in very poor condition. Was hoping someone had a photo which showed it before it became so delapidated.
