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.

My apologies for the large tour. The hostess accepted a family walk-in that should have been put in the next tour. That has been corrected. We fog for mosquitoes daily and provide Mosquito repellant. Our recent rains have dramatically increased the mosquito population. They seem...More

I was pleasantly surprised by this home and property and my son and I learned a lot about the area and the time period(s) in which the house stood. I love that it is modern in a sense because it has gone through several generations,...More
