We visited the Hampton Plantation State Historic Site in McClellanville, South Carolina- about 15 miles from Honey Hill campsite where we are living rent free for 14 days in our tent.
This site is in the Santee Delta region and has the final remnants of a colonial-era rice plantation.
The properly tells the story of the misery the slaves went through working in the rice fields with backbreaking labor and deadly working conditions. It also tells the story of the freed people who made their homes in the Santee Delta region for generations after emancipation.
It’s early March and many trees and bushes are in bloom. The gardens around the plantation were beautiful!
