*The Gippy Plantation is affirmed on this date in 1852.  This is one of the estimated 46,200 American plantations that existed in 1860.

This is a historic plantation house located near Moncks Corner in Berkeley County, South Carolina. The main house is a 2-1/2 story Greek Revival frame structure, with a four-column gabled pediment at the center of its main facade. A fixture of the Antebellum South, the house was built by John Sims White. 

The house was at the center of the plantation that was more than 1,800 acres in size. It received restoration and Colonial Revival features in the 1920s.  The plantation house was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2016.
