Hofwyl-Broadfield Rice Plantation Preserves and Interprets Rice Culture

The Brunswick News published two pieces recently about Hofwyl-Broadfield plantation on the Altamaha River in Glenn County, GA. The one-time rice plantation is now a Georgia state park that preserves and interprets rice culture and enslavement of over 300 persons for toady’s visitors.

Hofwyl-Broadfield produced rice as late as most any plantation in Georgia and all but a few in South Carolina, wrapping up commercial growth in 1917.
