The Williams Farm in Nesmith has a rich history, and one of its goals (besides producing juicy muscadine grapes) is to educate visitors about early African-American farm life in the rural South. The Rev. Gabriel Williams founded the farm in 1924, where he lived with his wife Mary and 20 kids in one crowded farmhouse as the first generation out of slavery. Today, the Williams Vineyard has won preservation awards for keeping their land and that farmhouse so intact. After his fathera��s passing, David Williams converted the farm from tobacco, cotton, and corn production to muscadine. The Williams make muscadine cider, but you have to go to Nesmith (northeast of Charleston, near Georgetown) to get a taste. Visit the farm for a tour and take home a bucket of grapes.
