The Shelmore Oyster Products Company bought Hobcaw Plantation in 1938. The company´s goal was to "shell more and sell more" oysters. The land became a truck farm that produced vegetables for area markets. The firm also canned locally grown tomatoes and okra. Farming was an important economic source for the area until the mid twentieth century.

Erected 2007 by Town of Mount Pleasant.
