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.

We stared our day with a delicious lunch in the tea room. Setting was beautiful and the food was excellent. Our tour group for the house was small and the guide was very well informed. Overall a really great experience.

We went to Hopsewee to have tea; it was a rainy day, but the place was just beautiful. Service was stellar and the tea offerings were well worth the trip! Highly recommend a trip to Hopsewee.

The plantation home was a bit disappointing as I was expecting something larger--but we learned during the tour that cotton plantations are large and rice plantations smaller because they didn't live there all year. The tour itself was very good and informative. The mosquitoes are...More
