The G.D. "Jerry" Varn family now owns & operates the plantation in Ehrhardt, South Carolina. The late 1700s plantation has been in the Varn family for eleven generations.
Mr. Varn towered almost seven feet tall and was easy to spot in a crowd. A charismatic guy with a heart as overwhelming as his stature, Jerry could quote from the Bible or constitution with equal eloquence. He was a true southern gentleman and a shrewd businessman who passed away in 2007.
