Overview
More
Hopsewee Plantation is an original lowcountry rice plantation on the North Santee Rive built between 1735 and 1740. Birthplace of Thomas Lynch Jr., Hopsewee is one of just 12 remaining birthplaces of Signers of the Declaration of Independence. The home has not been modified from its original design and is furnished with 18th and 19th century antiques. Two original slave cabins remain on the property. The guided tour explores the history of the Patriots and Planters who lived at Hopsewee while you explore the architectural features of the house from Attic to Cellar. Enjoy the hour long tour or just come for lunch in The River Oak Cottage Tearoom with Lowcountry favorites such as Shrimp and Grits, Pulled Pork, Soups and Sandwiches and our Southern Tea service modeled after a British Afternoon Tea.

So glad you enjoyed - but ... George Washington visited in Georgetown, but did not visit Hopsewee. We do the best we can about the mosquitoes - fogging every morning and providing complementary bug spray.

We enjoyed our guided tour of this "Preserved Plantation" (its the original stuff, this is NOT a restoration). The mosquitos are aggressive so put on some good bug spray. We learned a lot that we did not know about Rice Plantations and the civil war....More

As you enter the plantation the hostess was very helpful, and most definitely an expert at southern hospitality. The tour guide was most pleasant and informing of the type of life on a rice plantation, about the traditions of a family during this time, and...More

If you're looking for a shorter tour than those of Charleston, this is it. The entire tour was only an hour. The guide was very informative, humorous and kind. My mother-and-law and I enjoyed ourselves very much. It was quite informational and educational!
