Annandale Plantation of Georgetown County, SC
Archives & Records of the Plantations of South Carolina
by Mrs. Johnie Rivers
Annandale Plantation, originally named Millbrook, the site of the first tide-operated rice mill constructed in the state (ca. 1792), is one of South Carolina's finest remaining examples of the rice-plantation era. During the 1850s, Annandale was among the most prosperous of the rice plantations, working approximately 230 slaves and producing 900,000 pounds of rice. Andrew Johnston's father bequeathed the property to him, and he built the present plantation house in 1833. At that time he renamed the property Annandale after the birthplace of his ancestors in Annandale, Scotland. This two story Greek Revival structure, c.1833, is an excellent example of its style and period. Situated in a grove of live oaks and landscaped gardens, Annandale includes two existing outbuildings: a slave cabin which has been converted into a recreation building and the plantation-doctor's house, now a residence. Listed in the National Register October 25, 1973.
