Once known as the largest of all rice growing plantations, Jehossee Plantation has been associated with prominent South Carolina families, passed from Charles Drayton to William Aiken, once Governor of SC and US Congressman.

The last descendants to own Jehossee were the Maybank family of Charleston, who sold the island to the United State Fish and Wildlife Service. Jehossee is now part of the ACE Basin National Wildlife Refuge.

SCIWAY thanks Dean Herndon of Walterboro for submitting this information and the picture he took in May 2010. He reflects, “If only the live oaks of the South Carolina Lowcountry could talk, what stories they could tell.”

Jehossee Island – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Jehossee Island, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
