Hasty Point Bluff

Hasty Point Plantation

For 150 years, two dozen plantations along South Carolina’s Historic Plantersville District formed the cornerstone of the Southeast’s, and later the nation’s, rice-growing economy.

Now, OSI has become instrumental in preserving a representative example of these former working rice plantations — and honoring those who toiled under the region’s tragic slave-based economy.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Hasty Point Plantation includes a rare and historic standing rice barn and still-functional rice fields, poignant remnants of the labor of the enslaved.

OSI’s addition of the Plantation to the Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge will enhance opportunities for public access, environmental education, and interpretation of Hasty Point Plantation and the larger Plantersville Historic District.
