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.

Ten of us ladies gathered for a birthday celebration. The staff was friendly & helpful, and everyone raved about the food--especially the tomato pie and the chocolate stout cake. And don't forget to try the almond creme brulee! Very nice menu to choose from! Highly...More

Drove down from Myrtle Beach. Expected a little more substance. Just a house and two slave quarters that are failing into disrepair. Our tour quite was amazing and was clearly a proud South Carolinian. She was full of knowledge. Think $20 was a little steep...More

We enjoyed a tour of the historic home on the Santee River. The guide was very knowledgeable and shared interesting information about this well preserved home. There are also two slave quarters still standing where the house slaves lived.

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 thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Hopsewee!!!! I must say it was one of my favorite excursions with my mother. A sit down meal in the Tea room is well worth the extra time spent. The okra pancakes are absolutely out of this world!!! Kudos...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
