Historic Pick Pocket Plantation is the site of the first farm that became the Trask Family truck farming empire in the Beaufort South Carolina area. The property was owned for almost 100 years by the Trask family, the patriarch of whom was George W. Trask Sr, as the first acreage of what became their truck farming empire of thousands of acres of farmland surrounding Beaufort. The Beaufort operation was a part of a larger Trask truck farming operation that extended from Wilmington NC to Myrtle Beach and Beaufort.
According to John Keith, present day owner, the plantation home has undergone extensive renovations during its restoration. The home is noted for its distinctive architectural style, unusual exterior board siding, wrap-around porches and cupola or widow’s watch. “A lot of work has gone into this house during the last three years, but it’s turned out beautifully,” says Keith.
