Rice came to the United States in 1694, when a ship saling from  Madagascar was blow off course by a storm. Landing in Charleston for repairs, the captain expressed his gratitude by giving the governor of the colony a handful of rough rice grains. From this small amount, rice became a dominant commodity and export of the coastal rivers. Today, the shape and texture of rice beads symbolize Charleston's long and bountiful history from humble agricultural beginning.
