The plantations on the Waccamaw River were strategically located in terms of the cultivation of rice. The very climate and environment
of this region made rice cultivation very profitable.

plantation. He then transferred it to Dr. William Allston in 1806.At this time the main house was located across the lake, north of the present dwelling.
