Fodor's Review

Built in 1792 by Zephaniah Kingsley, a landowner who produced Sea Island cotton, citrus, sugar cane, and corn with the aid of about 60 slaves, 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.
