Poco Sabo Plantation – General History of the Region Architecture: Second Revival Period Society and Customs
Poco Sabo Plantation was part of the land granted to the first Landgrave, Edmund Bellinger. The name Poco Sabo, which is thought to mean “Little Known,” has been attached to the land since 1698. Adjacent to the house is a brick-enclosed cemetery which contains the grave of the fourth Landgrave, Edmund Bellinger, among others. The two-story wood frame house designed by Mr. Albert Simmons of Charleston was built in 1934 for Silas Howland of New York. The house consists of a central block with two-story recessed wings on each side. Windows are six over six (6/6) lights with exterior blinds.
The only pre-Civil War building remaining on the plantation is a small tabby structure located near the rice fields.
