Hopsewee Plantation was built between 1735 and 1740 by Thomas Lynch I.  The birthplace of Thomas Lynch Jr., South Carolina Signer of the Declaration of Independence, this original rice plantation house remains much the same as when it was built 40 years before the Revolutionary War.  A South Carolina National Historic Landmark, Hopsewee is a preservation and has always been long cherished by its owners.  In fact, its only been owned by five families, despite being over 275 years old.
Although still a private residence, guests are invited to enjoy a guided tour of the plantation house from attic to cellar as well as the plantation grounds.  Tour guides not only share the history of the Patriots and Planters who lived at Hopsewee but also the story of the slaves who lived and worked on the rice plantations of the area.  In addition to touring the property, guests can also just stop by to enjoy lunch or a Full Southern Tea in the River Oak Cottage Tea Room and enjoy the natural beauty of the grounds
"My husband and I always take a ride to Hopsewee Plantation when we visit Myrtle Beach and we have never been disappointed. Trees dripping in Spanish moss line the gravel drive to the tea house. We like to sit outside on the back porch in rocking chairs facing the river and plantation house. The Southern hospitality is truly genuine here and the food is simply wonderful. They make a lot of the jams on site and believe me when I tell you, you can't go wrong with the Full Southern Tea and the seafood dish. Hopsewee is a must on your list when visiting Myrtle Beach/Charleston.  ~Visited September 2011.

From ordering tickets on Zerve to our delightful lunch we had an amazing experience. Tour guide was knowledgeable and tea room was fantastic. Pimento cheese biscuits, quiche, and salad with a scone for desert. Would recommend to anyone and especially those looking for a taste of history. Loved that our tour guide once lived in the home.

Can't remember her name, but she knew more about the area than any we encountered in and around Charleston. Highly recommended for a pleasant and informative way to pass a couple of hours, and not crowded. All the staff was very helpful.

Enthusiastically recommended

Attended: Hopsewee Plantation - Attic to Cellar Guided Tour
One is never too old to learn new information and that is just what happened to us on this tour. To learn that rice was grown in SC and that slaves were well treated on this plantation and that slave descendants lived on the plantation til 1947 was all very revealing. To think that this couple would open their home so freely whilst they still live therein is amazing!

It is not possible to participate in this tour and regret it.

The tour guide was very informative. She answered all our questions enthusiastically. The cellar was extremely interesting and viewing the displays of artifacts was so educational. Standing on the bank of the North Santee was a real treat. We have encouraged others to go and enjoy the day at Hopsewee Plantation.
