We are a bunch of history buffs and love that the Grand Strand is rich with it.

Driving up the road to Litchfield Plantation in Pawleys Island and seeing the avenue of gorgeous oak trees with their hanging moss, it's easy to feel as though you've just been transported back to the 18th century.

The house was built in the 1740s and overlooks 375 acres of historic rice fields. Today, the house serves as a bed and breakfast while also hosting numerous weddings.

Inside, much of its 18th-century majesty remains intact, although with a few 21st-century upgrades.

If you're a fan of ghost stories like we are, you'll be interested to know that Litchfield Plantation is said to be the site of the ghost of Dr. Henry Tucker. He was a previous owner of the property and a volunteer with the Confederate Army during the Civil War.

One guest said he saw the ghost of Dr. Tucker in the home's blue room. The spirit was seen sitting in front of a fireplace.

So, whether it's the lore of the supernatural, the avenue of hundreds of awe-inspiring oak trees, or the love of area history, take the time to visit Litchfield Plantation while in the Myrtle Beach area.

It's a drive well worth making.
