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 stopped here for a tour and lunch at the tea room on our way to Georgetown, SC. The tour was great and the food was fresh and wonderful. I would definitely go back to eat lunch again in the tea room. A great place to stop if you are headed from Charleston to Myrtle Beach.

For anyone wanting to experience SC Revolutionary War history, this home is a must see. The interior is charming with many old and historical pieces of furniture and architectural details. The tour guide is very knowledgeable. The definitely needs an exterior cleaning and painting. I also wish the grounds were landscaped to reflect the era of the home. The lunch was delightful. Food very local.
