The site of an eighteenth and nineteenth century ferry, Galivants Ferry typifies the type of community that arose from the naval stores and agricultural industries that once dominated this region of the state. The agricultural architecture that remains - tenant farmer houses, storage barns, tobacco packhouses, curing barns, and sheds - reveal the agricultural heritage of Galivants Ferry and of the larger Pee Dee region. There are twenty-eight contributing historic buildings in the district. Thirteen buildings are directly related to agricultural uses. Eight structures are concentrated immediately next to the US Hwy 501 bridge. The others are scattered in the surrounding fields. Eleven to twelve buildings were houses for tenant families and farm supervisors; one house is the home of the Holliday family. A church sits at the edge of a long stretch of tobacco fields on Pee Dee Road. There are eight noncontributing buildings in the district. Listed in the National Register March 29, 2001.
