The principal crop at Kingsley Plantation was sea island cotton having previously been indigo. As overland transportation was cumbersome if not altogether impossible, bales would be loaded on river boats to be transported to markets. This pier is a contemporary version of the one on the Fort George River which runs beside the plantation. The palms grace the river's edge from the front lawn of the main house. (Film)
