Walnut Grove Plantation

Walnut Grove Plantation

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

Charles & Mary Moore established Walnut Grove on a 550-acre land grant about 1765. These Scots-Irish immigrants raised ten children in the house they built and lived in for 40 years. Mr. Moore relied on a dozen enslaved African Americans and his own large family to work his sizable farm. During the American Revolution, the Moore family, including eldest daughter Margaret Catherine Moore Barry, actively supported the Patriot cause. Walnut Grove Plantation tells the stories of the free and enslaved people who settled South Carolina and the rest of Britain's American colonies, fought for independence, and built a new nation. Walnut Grove offers hourly guided tours of the site's 250-year-old manor house and reproduction kitchen cabin and school house. Regular programs examine Colonial & Revolutionary Era history and often feature reenactors portraying people of the time.
