The Caw Caw Nature & History Interpretive Center is rich in natural, cultural, and historical resources. Once part of a 5500-acre rice plantation that flourished in the late 1700s and early 1800s, enslaved Africans applied their technology and skills in agriculture to make a highly successful series of rice fields out of this vast cypress swamp. Still visible on the site are the dikes, water control structures, and canals from a previous era.
