Kingsley Plantation

Kingsley Plantation Review

Built in 1792 by Zephaniah Kingsley, an eccentric slave trader, this is the oldest remaining cotton plantation in the state. The ruins of 23 tabby (a concretelike mixture of sand and crushed shells) slave houses, a barn, and the modest Kingsley home are open to the public via self-guided tours and reachable by bridge.
