Just north of the Stella Maris Resort are the ruins of 19th-century Adderley's Plantation, a cotton plantation that once occupied all of Stella Maris. Clearly marked, the road is marginally passable by car. It is about a 1-mi drive and then a fairly long walk. The walking path is marked by conch shells, and leads to the cotton plantation ruins. Seven buildings are practically intact up to roof level, but it is overgrown with vegetation. For historians, it is well worth the time.
