Creek Plantation
In 1968, William S. Morris III of Augusta, Ga, acquired Creek Plantation, a tract of land near Martin, S.C.,
fronting the Savannah River and comprising 2526 acres of timberlands and open fields used for
agriculture. The plantation offered Billy Morris the opportunity to pursue a lifelong interest in horses
and to begin breeding quarter horses. Morris’ interest in animals isn’t limited to horses. He began
building a commercial cattle operation, which consists of some 2200 commercial brood cows. In
addition, Creek Plantation is home to a herd of registered Texas longhorns. Over the year, Creek
Plantation has been expanded with the acquisition of additional land,, so that today it consists of nearly
14,000 acres and encompasses three commercial enterprises: horses, cattle, and timber.
