Summary

Significance: Before its destruction during, or soon after, the Civil War the main house at Haig Point plantation was the largest tabby domestic building erected in coastal South Carolina. Today, the north slave settlement associated with this structure includes three of the best preserved tabby walled, single slave dwellings still standing in Beaufort County. The settlement is also notable for its unusual curved - that is to say rather than a strictly rectilinear - layout.
Survey number: HABS SC-867
Building/structure dates: ca. 1826- 1838 Initial Construction
