Our Story

Welcome To History

As one of the most historic plantations in the South, the Fenwick Plantation has a centuries old story to tell. Built in 1730, Fenwick Hall once encompassed over 4500 acres, where rice and indigo were grown. The Fenwick Plantation was also the site of a famous horse farm – James Island Stud – that played a leading role in the introduction of English thoroughbred horses into the American South. The Fenwick Plantation was occupied by Lord Cornwallis and the British Army during the Revolutionary War, and the Union Army during the Civil War.
