Walnut Grove Plantation

Roebuck, South Carolina 29376
Voice: 864-576-6546

The Walnut Grove Plantation was the home of Charles and Mary Moore. They were granted the land in 1763 by King George III. The manor house is the original structure built by the Moore's in 1765. The Moore's had a large family of 10 children, all of whom lived to adulthood. The family grew everything they needed on the plantation.

Mr. Moore was a schoolteacher and built a school to teach his children and some of the other children in the area. In the school room here you will see items used in the classroom including desks and writing supplies. On one side of the room you will see spinning wheels and other items used to make their textiles. While these were not in the schoolhouse, they are displayed here only due to a lack of space else where. The house has many wonderful artifacts displayed, including items from the front room, kitchen, and bedrooms.

There are several other buildings on the ground that you can explore on a self-guided tour. You can get a real feel for the way life would have been living here. Besides the various buildings, there are also the gardens and family cemetery. You will enjoy learning the history of this plantation.

KAT'S VIEW

The Walnut Grove Plantation was really pretty. They had a nice herb garden and a well full of water only used for watering the plants. The little school room had a little chalk board and a piece of chalk on each desk. In the dormitory there was a bed that had little bed steps where the top step could be lifted up and you could store your slippers or other things in it. And on the door there was a door latch so if you had stuff in your hands you could open up the door with your elbow!
