Inscription. John J. Cross (1810~1890) bought 500 acres here in 1844 and soon expanded Moss Grove into one other most productive cotton plantations in antebellum Berkeley District. This house was built ca. 1880 for Cross's son Adam (1844~1906), who farmed here and served as postmaster while also operating a store, cotton gin, grist mill, rice mill, saw mill and turpentine still.
