McLeod Plantation


McLeod Plantation

Established in 1851, this 37-acre plantation is a significant Gullah/Geechee heritage site located on James Island. The McLeod plantation house, built in 1858, is a raised two-story clapboard structure. The plantation grounds include slave cabins, a detached kitchen, a gin house, a barn, a carriage house, and gardens. The property has served many capacities over the years, including a Confederacy Hospital, a burial ground for slaves and Union soldiers, and a headquarters office for the Freedmen's Bureau. Visitors can also view the McLeod Oak, which is believed to be more than 600 years old. The property was bought by the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission in 2010 and opened to the public in 2015. Included in the admission is a 45-minute guided tour and access to the first floor of the main house.
