Since acres of land are incapable of telling stories, we’ll just have to do our best to share those stories with you. When you’re here taking a horseback tour of our breathtaking plantation the incredible history of the acreage will come to life right before your eyes. Let’s start way back in 1861…
As evidenced by the remains of a cannon ball that still lies in place on the Battery Hill, our beautiful plantation was once the home of Fort Randall, a confederate fort from 1861 to 1863. The US North Atlantic Squadron was very active in this area during the War of the States, also known as the American Civil War. The open fields at the entrance of our stables were originally cleared by the 9000 confederate soldiers that once occupied the property. The tree line along the IntraCoastal Waterway served as the perfect barrier from coming enemy ships. The acres of land Inlet Point Plantation now sits on offered many natural advantages that made it the perfect location for a confederate fort. Today those same natural advantages make it the perfect place to enjoy a thrilling horseback tour.
