Best Future Historical Site (Oxymoron?)

McLeod Plantation

Staff Pick

For years McLeod Plantation was in limbo as it shifted between many hands and plans. We’re glad to see Charleston County will finally be opening the plantation to the public in the form of a historical museum this spring. This incredible property (featuring a plantation house with 20th-century additions, as well as original slave quarters) will focus on the Sea Island cotton plantation of the late antebellum period, the emancipation of the slaves, the history of the 55th Massachusetts infantry being stationed there, and the difficult transition of freedmen during the post-Reconstruction era. We’re looking forward to visiting the property and learning about the Lowcountry’s complicated past.
