The Oaks Plantation was established on the Santee River in 1705 by a grant from the Lords Proprietors to John Sauseau, a French Huguenot settler. It passed through several owners in the prominent Buchanan and Withers families before 1793, when brothers Isaac and William Mazyck acquired a tract of more than 1,00 acres and began producing rice here on the rich Santee River delta.

Erected by the St. James Santee Parish Historical Soiety - 1999.
