Stately oaks have witnessed history since before the American Revolution.
Originally three separate plantations producing rice from before the American Revolution until the end of the Civil War, the 1,800 acres that now make up The Ford Plantation were acquired by Henry Ford as a winter retreat in the 1920s, as he assembled some 80,000 acres of land in coastal Georgia.

Rice has been an integral part of the Plantation since at least 1803 when the property was leased to Georgia Revolutionary Joseph Habersham, Mayor of Savannah in 1792 and founder of the Savannah Steamship Company. Today, members can walk, horseback ride, and even play golf alongside the same lush rice fields that existed in Habersham’s day. Our rice sheaf design was drawn from a mahogany bedpost carved around the turn of the 18th century when rice was a symbol of wealth. We have preserved the design as a graphic reminder of the rich history that lives on today at The Ford Plantation.
