Explore The Ruins Of An Old Rice Mill By The River In This South Carolina Wildlife Management Area

South Carolina is home to a number of fascinating ruins that are open to the public to explore. There are the ruins of the old Stoney-Baynard house, the old stone Poinsett Bridge, and Old Sheldon Church ruins, to mention only a few. And while those are all well-known and very prominent ruins to explore, the ruins of an old rice mill perched on the Cooper River are much lesser known – but none the less fascinating.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

If you’re adding these ruins of an old rice mill to your bucket list, it’s best to schedule the trip for sometime between March and October. Even then, it’s closed on days that are scheduled for archery or firearm events. If you want to call ahead to make sure it’s open, you can try 803-734-3808.

The public visitation days from March to October (unless there is a hunt) are Thursday through Sunday. Note that Saturdays aren’t open until 11 a.m. in the month of April. Learn a few more details about access from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
