McLeod Plantation
325 Country Club Drive
Charleston, SC 29412

McLeod Plantation is temporarily closed to the public as the structures are stabilized for safety and archaeological research is conducted. No unauthorized public access to this property is allowed.



McLeod Plantation is a 36.9-acre property located on Country Club Drive on James Island, overlooking Wappoo Creek at its northern tip. Historically significant from 1741 to 1990, the plantation was a site of nearly 300 years of continuous agricultural use and was associated with Revolutionary and Civil War activities. It was a working plantation by the namesake McLeod family from about 1850-1940. The property also features an outstanding collection of buildings - some dating as far back as the 18th century - several oak allées, and a rich archeological record. On February 28, 2011, Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission purchased McLeod Plantation on James Island from the Trustees of Historic Charleston Foundation for $3.3 million. To ensure the protection and preservation of this historic site, consultants with experience in historic preservation developed a master plan for the property and prepared plans for the stabilization of the structures prior to enabling access to the plantation by the public. Construction work is expected to be complete by the end of 2014, early 2015.
