This tract is the remaining property that made up ‘Rosenwick Plantation’, which was significant AS being the first farm to grow tobacco in South Carolina. Frank Mandeville Rogers, Sr. experimented growing tobacco on the plantation in 1885 as a more profitable alternative to cotton. The profitability of growing tobacco instead of cotton was a great success and was significant because it allowed smaller farmers and sharecroppers to be able to prosper without owning large tracts or plantations. Rogers also developed the “Off the Stem” method of curing tobacco which greatly increased the quality of the tobacco leaf. This remaining tract is still being farmed, but its highest and best use would be as a single estate tract or a residential development tract.
