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.

My husband and I decided on touring Hopsewee Plantation for one of our vacation events. We learned so much from our wonderful tour guide who knew her history! We then had lunch at the tearoom which was very good! I've always heard of Minted Lemonade but this was my first taste. Yum! Our food was very good also. We shared a piece of Toasted Coconut Cake which was delicious! Everyone was very friendly and we hope to return again some day! Thanks!
