Welcome to ACE Basin NWR
Presently at approximately 12,000 acres, the refuge may encompass 18,000 acres upon completion of additional purchases and consists of two separate units. The Combahee Unit is located near Yemassee, SC, and the Edisto Unit is on the old Grove Plantation near Adams Run, SC.
The Grove Plantation House, built in 1828, is one of few antebellum mansions in the ACE Basin area to survive the Civil War. Former owners ensured it would be preserved by placing it on the National Register of Historical Places.
