South-Carolina-Plantations.com

       South-Carolina-Plantations.com is a directory of information about South Carolina plantations and the people who lived and worked on them. It includes basic data for more than 2,000 SC plantations. These plantations are grouped by county (today's 46), but in time they will also be listed by place and waterway. They define a plantation as a large farm on which most of the work was done by slaves. Thus all the plantations cataloged were established before the Civil War.
