Rice Trunk Model
Hand made rice trunk gate model. This working replica of an authentic rice trunk gate is made of Tupelo wood and measures 20 in. long by 13 in. high and 5 in. deep. These gates were used on the plantations in Georgetown County to control water levels in the rice fields. Gates of this same design are still used along our rivers to manage wetlands to benefit wildlife and waterfowl.
