This beautiful plantation represents the history and culture of Georgia’s rice coast. In the early 1800s, William Brailsford of Charleston carved a rice plantation from marshes along the Altamaha River. The plantation and its inhabitants were part of the genteel low country society that developed during the antebellum period. While many factors made rice cultivation increasingly difficult in the years after the Civil War, the family continued to grow rice until 1913. In more recent years, the fifth generation descendants resolved to turn it into a dairy farm rather than sell the plantation. The last survivor willed it to the state of Georgia in 193.
