Name:Leconte-Woodmanston Foundation
About Us:LeConte's Woodmanston Rice Plantation, part of the National Register of Historic Places, is located in Liberty County, Georgia. Home of the LeConte family, of Riceboro, Georgia, some of American's most prolific scientists. This 18th and 19th century rice plantation was one of the largest in Liberty County, located in historic Bulltown Swamp, a blackwater swamp ecosystem peculiar to the coastal plains. Its unique inland swamp, gravity flow system of irrigation was seldom used after 1820. Today the LeConte-Woodmanston Foundation is restoring approximately 64 acres of the original 3,300 acre plantation, centered around the 1838 homesite, which contained the botanical gardens, and the rice fields in the heart of historic Bulltown Swamp.

Open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 am to 5 pm

Closed December 18 through February 14, Thanksgiving and Easter. February through April, call the site for road conditions. Heavy rains may wash out the main road.
