Love this historic rice plantation—former home of a Declaration of Independence signer— on the banks of the Santee River! Cafe with yummy local specialties open for lunch & tea. Easily accessible from Highway 17 between McClellanville & Georgetown, SC.

Beautiful place worth the trip. The trees and landscape is gorgeous. It's quiet and peaceful. During the summer months it's busy and full of bloom. Winter is the perfect time for a visit.

We had a great time visiting the Plantation and seeing the beautiful Christmas decorations. It was an extra blessing to met the owners and chat with them.
