Willbrook Plantation earliest known existence is about 1776. Around 1856, William Ellis bought Willbrook, Turkey Hill and Oatland for use as a duck and quail hunting preserve. From that day forward, the combined three plantations were called Willbrook. Remnants from the plantation days are still around. Plaques point out the sites where old slave quarters once stood. The remains of the original plantation itself can be found under the old oaks where excavations have brought up artifacts from the 18th century. There is a slave cemetery with only one grave marker hidden under the spreading live oak trees. Original plantation lands were located northwest of US 17 in the vicinity of Willbrook Boulevard, and stretched from the Waccamaw River to the Atlantic Ocean.
