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.

enjoyed the tour given by a person who had lived in the house as a young person. the house is currently lived in so it makes the tour more realistic. the food in the tea room was well above average and the staff at HOPSEWEE WERE WONDERFUL.

My wife and I both thought the tour was oustanding. Very knowledgeable guide would didn't rush anyone and explained things thoroughly. I would recommend this to all to get a glimpse and insight into plantation living and history.

Don't miss out by not eating lunch in the Tea Room. It was exquisite.

we went on our tour on a wet day, they have umbrellas. the tour guide was very good she told us about the plantation and also about the local history. when we were done we went to the tea room for lunch , the cook (and owner of the plantation) was told one one was going to be having lunch. she was in the middle of closing down the kitchen. when she knew we wanted something she was so kind and opened the kitchen and treated us like special guests. This is a must see, I would go back again just for the food (which you are very welcomed to do)
