Sheldon Plantation is situated in the heart of South Carolina's plantation country between Charleston and Savannah in an area known as the ACE Basin. The Old Sheldon Church Ruins, one of the most well-known historical places in South Carolina, is located near the western edge of the plantation.
 Land in this particular area is characterized by elevations in topography of 5 to 25 feet above sea level surrounded by tidal creeks and marshes. It was this coastal environment that attracted the greatest interest among the nation’s earliest explorers and settlers. The property was once part of a 3000 acre plantation belonging to Governor William Bull during the 1700’s.
The plantation now consists of approximately 493 acres of canopied uplands, 23 acres of ponds and 61 acres in rice fields that provide a wonderful habitat for all types of wildlife. Sheldon’s unique history and beauty give a magical quality to the place. Hunting and fishing is excellent. Improvements include a charming lake house with a nearby guest cottage, a work shop and equipment shed. Other plantations in the immediate neighborhood include Brewton, Twickenham, Bonny Hall, Tomotley, Rose Hill, Cotton Hall and Bray’s Island. Charleston, Savannah, Hilton Head and Beaufort are easy drives.

The Ashepoo, Combahee and South Edisto (ACE) Basin represents one of the largest undeveloped estuaries on the east coast of the United States. The ACE Basin consists of approximately 350,000 acres of diverse habitats including pine and hardwood uplands, forested wetlands, fresh, brackish and salt water tidal marshes, barrier islands and beaches. The basin's unique estuarine system, the largest of its type in the state, provides invaluable habitat for a rich diversity of finfish and shellfish resources. The area was once inhabited by the Yemasee and Combahee Indians, subtribes of the Coosawhatchie River People.
