The Rocks plantation was originally in Berkeley County, but in 1908 the county lines were redrawn and the plantation became part of Orangeburg County. Original plantation lands were located seven miles northeast of the Town of Eutawville off SC 6. The property was lost when the area was flooded as a result of the Santee Cooper Hydroelectric and Navigation Project. The house was moved to escape the flooding but was destroyed by fire in 1992.
