At first glance, Woodburn Plantation doesn't look like it's 180 years old. It looks like a house that belongs on Bay Street in Charleston, South Carolina, overlooking the harbor and Fort Sumter. But Woodburn is located at 130 History Lane, just off US 76, near Pendleton, South Carolina. The three-story antebellum house was built as a summer home in 1830... More

Woodburn Plantation is a local gem, carefully tended by the Pendleton District Historical Foundation. On this visit, Woodburn was hosting a Farm Day. There were house tours, wagon rides, local traditional craft demonstrations, animals, children's crafts, antique farm equipment and refreshments. A delightful day!

This isn't a huge site, but there is an ag museum, the Moorhead cabin, and a few other buildings on the property with this house. The house was interesting to tour. We went on an event day so there was an interpreter in the house to tell us about it. Website says tours are just Sunday afternoons, unless you make... More

We love to tour old southern towns and homes and this was a very good treat. Had a guided tour with a lot of history to share and very nice to answer any questions we had about the home and people who lived their. We went on a Halloween ghost story tour later in the year on Halloween night and... More

We visit the Woodburn Plantation with our school. It's always fun and educational for the kids with role playing and story telling. There's lots to explore. Never gets old no matter how many times we visit. Good clean safe fun for singles, couples and families.

The barn made a beautiful background for my nephew's wedding ceremony! The reception was also held there. The brick patio in front of the house made a great dance floor for the couple's 1st dance, the traditional wedding events and plenty of room for the guests to dance. The grounds were kept nicely and was a perfect location for the... More

First, this is not a fancy, over-the-top plantation house. Go somewhere else if you are looking for that. This home is really a very wealthy and influential man's farmhouse. I am not taking anything away from how enjoyable the home was but you can see the man's practically in everything. He was a wealthy indigo grower and a very practical... More

Have been to this home a few times for weddings, but had not taken a tour of the home until this past weekend. I love the Victorian carriage house and cabin on the grounds as well. It is the full history of this home that is the draw. Tours are given by Pendleton Historical Foundation at a small cost for... More

I have been to many house museums, but I have to say that the tour guides at Woodburn were the best I have ever heard. The information was presented in a very interesting way. The house was beautiful and very well presented. They even left one room unfinished so you could see the construction. The tour only costs $6.00, but... More
