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

If you love history, you will love this tour. Beautifully preserved plantation house in upstate SC. The guides here are so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Great stories about the home and the people who lived there. Make sure that you see the cistern under the house and the attic where the children slept. So many historical pieces in the house, some...

Woodburn was brought back from the edge of destruction, beginning in the 1960's. Now mostly restored, it is a marvelous example of upcountry manor home, set on a beautiful tree-topped hill.

Run by the Foundation that also owns Ashtabula, Woodburn is a great glimpse into the past and South Carolina history.
