Photo Essay: Spring Breaks 'Round the World: Georgetown, South Carolina

By Peter Holslin & Ryan Hale

The ornate mansion and lush grounds of the Chicora Wood plantation have been perserved, in part, because Jamie and Marcia Constance bought and renovated the area in the mid-1980s. They now operate a turf farm, and harvest about 800 acres of green grass, which they sell to the neighboring communities. Old rice flanked the creks off the Pee Dee River, reminding one of Chicora's past.
