Coastal South Carolina during the Colonial Period was the largest producer of rice in America. Around 1685, a brigantine ship sailing from the island of Madagascar encountered a raging storm, perhaps a small hurricane, and put into Charleston Harbor for repairs. The captain of the ship gave a gift of a bag of rice to the town’s best known resident. Thanks to the Captain and the resident…rice in Charleston became quite the crop!
