Maps & Directions

In the 1920s and 30s, wealthy sporting enthusiasts from the North created large estates in the coastal region of South Carolina by turning former sites of slave labor into places of leisure. In the process, they changed the meaning of the word ‘plantation’, in regards to historical memory of slavery and contemporary views of the South. In the book, A New Plantation World, Daniel Vivian explores the changing symbolism of plantations in Jim Crow-era America.
