A small foundation ruin on the grounds of Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation is all that is left of a tabby rice mill in Brunswick, GA.
Around 1806 William Brailsford began the construction of a rice plantation along the Altamaha River. Brailsford's descendants managed the rice plantation until 1913, when they converted it to a dairy. The dairy closed in 1942, but the property remained in family hands. Upon her death in 1973, Ophelia Dent--the last family member--bequeathed Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation to the State of Georgia as a historic site.
