Dr. Rice's is South Isle plantation. Samuel Fuqua, son of William Fuqua, built the first part of the house ca. 1780. In 1840, additions and alterations in the Gothic Revival style were done by then owner, John Young. During the Civil War the plantation was owned by I. B. Rice, who changed the name to The Oaks. The plantation, once again known as South Isle, is now privately owned and has been wonderfully restored. Kathy Liston 2003
