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 beginning with the brief video. Our guide was excellent. She obviously enjoyed sharing the house with us. Her knowledge and presentation was very engaging. I don't know her name, but she told me she was a fashion design graduate.

My friend and I were extremely pleased that we toured this plantation. It was especially interesting to learn that the plantation father and son were signers of the Declaration.

Tour guide (jJean, I believe) was delightful and informative. Lunch at tea room was great. They were very busy but was worth the wait. Lots of great historical information.

One of the best experiences in Charleston historical activities. Owners on site and interact with quests. Very professional but down to earth experience. The tea room and lunch experience make it a must for both locals and visiting guests.
