[SC] McLeod Plantation - opening this week

McLeod Plantation - opening this week - tackles slavery, freedom

A quarter century after Willie McLeod died and left his former James Island plantation to a local preservationist group, the 37-acre property — complete with a main house, riverfront access and an iconic row of former slave cabins — is opening its gates.

Now a Charleston County Parks and Recreation site, McLeod welcomes its first visitors at 9 a.m. Tuesday and will hold a grand opening for the public on Saturday.

Visitors will see an antebellum sea island cotton plantation that evolved into a Civil War headquarters for both Union and Confederate troops, a Freedman’s Bureau site and eventually a truck farm in the 20th century.
