Sunnyside Plantation dates back to the early 1800's.The plantation is privately owned and closed to the public. It is rented for special events & weddings.
Sunnyside Plantation is the key property in the designation of the Murrells Inlet Historic District. Documentation supports that this house was built in the 1800's by Jacob Motte Alston, son of rice planters in the Waccamaw Neck. However, there is an 1800 plat that exists--referring to the property and oral history suggests the house may have been built by Gov. Joseph Alston for his bride, Theodosia Burr, who died in 1812. An old map shows "Sunnyside-on-Murrell's Inlet, A Seashore Residence" with property lines that run from the Waccamaw River to the sea.
