Waterfront Plantation in Georgetown, South Carolina for sale 

Friendfield Plantation is located on the Sampit River near the historic seaport of Georgetown. The plantation was originally operated for the production of indigo and rice. Since the 1930’s Friendfield has been managed for timber production and hunting. The land contains quail courses running through beautiful expanses of long leaf pines. There are over 250 acres in restored rice fields for ducks and other migratory waterfowl along the riverfront.

The house at Friendfield was originally constructed  in 1801. Following a fire in 1928 the house was
rebuilt on the same foundations under the direction of architect Authur Meigs of the Philadelphia firm of Mellor and Meigs.





 There are numerous historic structures of significance on the property including slave houses,
ruins of ancient settlements, and the house at Silver Hill built in 1791 (photo above). This house had fallen
into disrepair and was uninhabited since 1863 until being meticulously restored by the present owner
during 1998-2000.



The Silver Hill House is located at the end of the road at the edge of the ricefields.

Conservation Easements
Few places in America contain more history and charm than Friendfield. There are no conservation easements on the property. Because of its location and other special features, there could be substantial tax benefits to a purchaser willing to protect all or parts of the plantation.

The Friendfield House is located on a peninsular at the eastern end of the plantation.
