The Home and Grounds at Historic Hopsewee Plantation

Built some 40 years before the Revolutionary War, the solidly built house at Hopsewee has stood the test of time. Set along the banks of the beautiful North Santee River, the structure is typical of Lowcountry rice plantations of the early 18th century with details like a full brick cellar, attic rooms, hand-carved molding and random-width heart-pine floors.

“With walls of black cypress and floors of
heart pine, this stately house on the banks
of the North Santee River is the real thing.”

—Steven Roberts, the Washington Post
