This was a good stop. In is a southern plantation. It gives you a good look into life on the south more then a 100 years ago.

As other reviewers have noted, the Butler Rice Plantation is a very rundown building with not much to see/learn in the way of history. However, as a spot for birders, it can be interesting. The front lawn can yield Meadowlarks and Pine Warblers in winter...More

This particular plantation consists of little else than a house and two brick structures in the front yard. There are two historical markers on the site giving a brief history of the plantation and its owners. Not much else to be said about it. Very...More

I have passed by this site since the 1950's but never stopped. It is of historical significance but the site could have been more informational and better maintained. Not sure why it is not. We took the road to the public kayak landing there and...More

This was a very interesting place to ride bikes and see the wildlife. We saw a bunch of alligators. Neat to see them in the wild.

I'm glad I made a stop to walk around the home, enjoy the ruins of the rice mill, and explore some of the old rice fields. There really is not much to see and it doesn't take long to walk around the grounds. It's free!...More

Driving along Highway 17 outside Darien you will see this beautiful home. Unable to go inside at the time, but the surrounding were beautiful.

Couldn't get too close to the house, the yard and surrounding areas were flooded. Nice fishing dock on the river. WMA for duck hunting.

I knew the history behind this plantation before I ever went. So I wasn't expecting a huge plantation home, slave quarters, a museum etc. Since this property is associated with the Nature's Conservancy, ( I saw one of their signs on the property) I was...More

It's a fascinating piece of history, but it's occupied by a business, so not open to the public., although they seem to allow folks to roam around the outside. If it was set up for inside, it would have gotten more stars. But still worth...More
