A1: The land purchased by Archer Milton and Anna Hyatt Huntington to become Brookgreen Estate and Gardens had once contained four large rice plantations. After the abolition of slavery and the development of new automated machinery that replaced the need for as much manual labor as in the past, rice farming was no longer feasible in the SC lowcountry, because the machinery got stuck in the mud! Afterward, the land was used for hunting.
